adding the suffix "ppa<version>" to a package name

Hello Cesare,
My bad, I totally forgot to mention that the changelog is generated automatically by the Perl module Dist::Zilla::Plugin::ChangelogFromGit::Debian ( Of course, by following your recommendation I would say I'm missing something there (there is no option to setup version as you did in your example).

Thank you for the references, I'll go through them.

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 tree3. issue the command dch -D <distro_codename> -v <your_version_number>
e.g.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 installedin your linux box, which is handier IMO. ;)
Hope this helps.Cesare
