Empty Packages

I would like to create some empty packages for use when testing Apt-Updater, A while back you created one for htop which I currently use but I need to have multiple upgradeable packages for some changes I am trying to implement (ability to choose which packages to update). I think I can code this without too much of a problem but need to be able to force a few packages to be old for testing. Could you either...

A.) let me know how I could easily create a dummy package (like for htop)
or
B.) create a few more similar empty packages for existing ones (that are unimportant to system).

My preference would be to let me know how to do it so I would be able to continue without repeated requests, but if I can get a few either way it would be most helpful.

Re: Empty Packages

First create work directory, for ex. '/tmp/wkdir' and 'cd' to it.
Download file 'installer.cfg' attached
Run q4os installer compiler 'dash /program_files/q4os-devpack/bin/create_q4app_setup.sh installer.cfg'
'htop' package will be generated.
You can create other dummy packages with various versions editing the 'installer.cfg'
