So, the workflow, as I see it, should be like that:

1. Build my own deltah mirror (at least partial) as described in
   HowToCreateYourOwnGNULinuxDistribution [1].

Actually, it'll be your own Hardy mirror, from which you will derive a deltah repo with Builder.

If you're short on bandwith I could see about copying my own local repo to DVDs and sending them to you. I believe there's a tool that makes that somewhat easy, but I've never used it.

2. Make my changes to the Builder, so it would support a new version of
3. Test my mirror locally.
4. Send a Builder patch to the mailing list.

Or put the patch in bzr branch I can merge.

Alternatively, you could limit yourself to hardy main (so not include -security/-updates/-backports and universe) in your debmirror. We don't do 64 bit, so you can skip amd64 in any case.

But where gnash-0.8.7 should go actually, main or backports?

The deltah-backports component is provided but not supported by us. Everything in Builder is supported, so I suggest you put it in the main deltah component.

Yet another option is to just study the code and provide a patch (or steps to take) that you think will work. :)
