You probably should Suggest: libnet-ssh-perl-perl [or whatever it
actually is] and reassign the bug against your package to WNPP and
retitle it as an RFP (or ITP if you plan to package it.)

Hopefully your directions inclue dh-make-perl --build --cpan
Net::SSH::Perl; or similar which should build a .deb to satisfy this

Perhaps someone on debian-perl would be interested in packaging this

[One also wonders why the script is using Net::SSH::Perl instead of
Net::SSH, since the latter provides similar functionality using ssh
