So we partially discussed about that during our last weekly meeting 
and it come out the best way to support both Debian & Ubuntu are Puppet
conditionals, like we already have in place.
See the example with puppet-nova |2] where we use $::operatingsystem
fact  to detect if we're running Ubuntu or Debian.
If we're running Ubuntu, we take reference from UCA packaging. If
Debian, we take your work as reference.

I personally learnt (and am still learning) by using official
documentation , that I suggest you to start with.
Hope it helps,
