Very short answer is: take a source code of module from git, include 'debian' 
folder from tde-packaging git repository, update version in 'changelog' and 
you can build :)

To maintain the nightly-builds and preliminary-stable-builds repositories of 
course we have scripts that automate the creation of source packages - 
especially for maintaining versioning of packages. Unfortunately, these 
scripts are not yet published. However, you can use the script 
create-tarball, which can serve as a basis to get 'orig.tar.xz'.

Alternatively, you can use one very simple way - download the source package 
from the nightly-builds or from preliminary-stable-builds, add a patch to 
test and build. This is by far the easiest way.

For KPlayer please create a new bug report in Trinity Bugzilla and attach the 
patch to this bug report.
