I completly misunderstud this point: I've take as example
libxml-simple-perl, and since the generated package was similar to
that one, I think I've reached my goal.

Ok, no problem: I'll redo it again, this time use New Mantainers Guide
as reference.

I'll let you know when done (hope this time right). Will I have to
provide only source package or even the binary generated one?

Many thanks for halping me
