I've created the 'hello world' example using Quickly and created a debian package using quickly package. This package installs the app into /usr/share and /usr/bin.

However, the packaging requirements at say that the package has to install into /opt. How do I convert my quickly application so that it conforms with the requirements?

You can use a new command to generate a proper package. It will also ask you to create a launchpad project and set up everything you need:

quickly submitubuntu

You can also try it on a local package by running quickly package --extras – David Planella May 18 '12 at 11:00
