NAME

       add-apt-repository  -  Adds a repository into the /etc/apt/sources.list
       or /etc/apt/sources.list.d

SYNOPSIS

       add-apt-repository [OPTIONS] REPOSITORY

DESCRIPTION

       add-apt-repository is a script which adds an external APT repository to
       either /etc/apt/sources.list or a file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/.

       Currently  the  only  option  supported  by  add-apt-repository  is  as
       follows:

       -h,--help Show help message and exit

REPOSITORY STRING

       REPOSITORY can  be  either  a  line  that  can  be  added  directly  to
       sources.list(5),  or  in  the  form  ppa:<user>/<ppa-name>  for  adding
       Personal Package Archives.

       In  the   first   form,   REPOSITORY   will   just   be   appended   to
       /etc/apt/sources.list.

       In  the second form, ppa:<user>/<ppa-name> will be expanded to the full
       deb  line  of  the  PPA  and   added   into   a   new   file   in   the
       /etc/apt/sources.list.d/  directory.   The  GPG public key of the newly
       added PPA will also be downloaded and added to apt's keyring.
