Hello all,
My name is Alceu I'm new to this list and also a beginner regarding package creation.
I'm trying to figure out how to add the suffix "ppa<version>" as described in but unable so to do so.

I already have a PPA and created a DEB package from a Perl distribution (Linux::Info, available at CPAN too) by using dh-make-perl and customizing the files from there.
I was able to generate the package (and it passed the tests with litian and pbuilder) but I didn't find a way to add the suffix. Related documentation says that I could do that if I add a DEBIAN directory with a control file there, but since it's a Perl program (not compiled, without XS code) I don't know if it is the correct way to do it.

If you have any reference about, please let me know. Besides the documentation, I also tried to check other Perl projects with PPAs available for examples but I wasn't able to see the source from there (thus checking the respective configuration files).
Thanks in advance,Alceu
