What you describe sounds good enough.

Without a fully automated process to build .deb for several distros, I
don’t think we can offer to distribute .deb ourselves.  :-/

If you’re versed in Guix, you might be interested in writing a
derivation that runs Debian in QEMU and invokes the commands that build
.deb files, as Chris suggested.  That would be awesome.
