When someone is new to packaging, they need to learn a bit to download a source package and build it locally, for example to fix a bug or before updating the package to a new upstream release.

I will cover setting up a debian unstable/development environment and then building a package from source.

This is targetting newbies to packaging and most of it is alreday documented in wiki, but I would like to provide a video walk through of the whole process, which can enhance the current text based documentation as well.
