Sure. I will check what happens (or goes wrong) with quickly.

Thanks a lot. My changelog file had distro name as 'unstable' instead
of 'precise oneric'. I have modified it to 'precise oneric' (this
should generate .deb for Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04) - I have done this
according to debian documentation. I have also uploaded them using
dput now. I am eagerly waiting for seeing the PPA.

Sure I will look into the quickly stuff.
