packaging project for precise that requires >=cmake-2.8.8

You add that PPA as a PPA dependency in your PPA itself.  Then it includes that repo in the builds environments and you then just refer to CMake as normal or define a version equality in the control file.

There's nothing you do in your package's control file though - it's in the PPA settings of your PPA you have to change that.

(This is what I do for my Precise PPA for the ZNC package, in the staging environment, to call in later gcc versions)
