Hi Joost,
take an example from deb sources packages already published.

Download these three files:

then dpkg-source -x *.dsc

copy the pgadmin3-1.8.0/debian to the upstream source directory (it should
be in a directory untitled pgadmin3-1.8.2)

then cd pgadmin3-1.8.2

type dch -i to add a changelog entry and modify the version number to
something like 1.8.2-xxx

then dpkg-buildpackage  -rfakeroot

it should build quite straightforward.

I know I'm late in releasing the package of 1.8.2 and I'm sorry about that.
