The answer for .debs is: ask a Debian developer (or a prospective
developer) to package it for you.

The reason is that to make a good .deb, one needs to be familiar with a lot
of Debian-specific policies and technologies.  If one is willing to invest
the time and effort to learn this, then it makes sense for one to apply to
become a Debian developer.  If not, then packaging is best left for someone
