So, the 'normal' way is to create a debian source package, which effectively contains code and build instructions, and then generate a matrix of binary deb's from that. *buntu users would just put that on LaunchPad, which will populate the build matrix for your PPA automatically. d-apt is not a PPA though, so maybe it would be simplest for you to contact the maintainer of d-apt and ask his advice. It might just slide into his scripts without requiring any additional effort on your part...?
