Hello Alceu,

you lack the debian/changelog file; to create a new entry (or the first one
in your case):

1. open a terminal
2. enter your debian/ directory in the source tree
3. issue the command dch -D <distro_codename> -v <your_version_number>

dch -D xenial -v 0.1~ppa1

You can also edit the file manually, please see for reference

or you may better have a look at any changelog file in any package installed
in your linux box, which is handier IMO. ;)

Hope this helps.
