Debian's .deb packaging format is supported by mature and user-friendly packaging tools.
It's also the native packaging format in several systems, and would improve user experience on those systems.
It would be nice to generate pkgsrc packages to this format.
Prior work exists has been done on generating packages in other formats.
* Lookup .deb format documentation and experiment with tooling
* Investigate differences between pkgsrc's pkg and deb format
* Import necessary tools to generate .deb packages
* Build many packages and look for bugs
