Everything seems to build just fine and when I run pbuilder-dist my changes file becomes unsigned and I have to resign it before uploading to my ppa. Should I just build it then upload it to my ppa and not run pbuilder-dist. I have followed the packaging guide for packaging new software but I keep running into this snag.

You need to put "zesty" in debian/changelog, not "Zesty Zapus".

Can you help with this problem?
