       add-apt-repository    -    Adds   a   repository   into   the   /etc/apt/sources.list   or
       /etc/apt/sources.list.d or removes an existing one


       add-apt-repository [OPTIONS] REPOSITORY


       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/ or removes an already existing

       The options supported by add-apt-repository are:

       -h, --help Show help message and exit

       -r, --remove Remove the specified repository

       -y, --yes Assume yes to all queries

       -k, --keyserver Use a custom keyserver URL instead of the default


       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.
