How to start packaging for CCR?

So I wanted to help contribute to CCR by adopting the orphaned package Synfig Studio, but I can’t seem to find anything to help myself with. For example, on our wiki there is:
https://wiki.chakralinux.org/index.php?title=How_to_become_a_packager Which talks about how to become a packager but not on a technical side
https://wiki.chakralinux.org/index.php?title=Chakra_Community_Repository#Installing_Packages Instead doesn’t explain how to make a package
https://wiki.chakralinux.org/index.php?title=Chakra_Packaging_Standards Shows how to do a package, but not how to organize the source code.

How would one, given the program binaries, https://www.fosshub.com/Synfig-Development.html , make a package so others can install it? Most importantly, how would someone organize the different sections of the program? As said here?

Sorry if this may be the wrong category but I couldn’t decide whether put this in Discussion or Help. Also I’m here to learn, so don’t say this is stupid please :wink: .

In this particular case, since this software is available in the AUR, I recommend reading this topic:

In general, wiki.chakralinux.org is barely maintained, and on the subject of packaging you are better off reading this.

Thanks for the answer, I’ll take a read!
