Create debian package for IOK

IOK (Indic Onscreen Keyboard)
This is a GUI for various keyboard layoutsiok1
But IOK is not in Debian package formate, it is available in .rpm only. Here i get the source of IOK and create .deb package from that.
Download the source tarball from here

$ mkdir iok
$ cd iok
$ cp /home/suji/iok-1.3.6.tar.gz .
$ tar xvzf iok-1.3.6.tar.gz
$ mv iok-1.3.6.tar.gz iok_1.3.6.orig.tar.gz
$ cd iok-1.3.6
$ dh_make -e
$ debuild -S -k<keyid>
$ cd ..
$ dpkg -i iok_1.3.6-1_i386.deb

How to upload the package for review

$ dput revu package_version_source.changes
