However, the manpage does not reflect this (as seen on http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/wily/en/man1/add-apt- repository.1.html or http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/en/man1/add-apt- repository.1.html). While the tool's own help text does mention it, this should be documented in the manpage as well.
