      Description

      The instructions from here:

      https://www.percona.com/doc/percona-server/LATEST/installation.html#building-percona-server-debian-ubuntu-packages

      may be correct for someone generating debs for multiple plateform but is not the common use case.  Instead of using the complex sbuild tool,  the procedure should use:

      dpkg-buildpackage -b

      which is much simpler.
