I was about ready to get back to reviewing this (or just saying meh, I don't see anything obviously wrong, so just upload it) 3 months ago when you declared that you gave up on the MR.
I don't see how creating a new tool is easier than just uploading your changes. Both have the same effect of ignoring feedback. I do believe the changes are too big to be backported into older release series. It's next to impossible to review the merge requests because it just keeps growing and growing, and mixing all sort of work together in one gigantic diff. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to software-properties in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/645404 Title: Support Private PPAs Status in software-properties package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Status in software-properties source package in Bionic: Won't Fix Status in software-properties source package in Cosmic: Won't Fix Status in software-properties source package in Disco: Won't Fix Status in software-properties source package in Eoan: Won't Fix Status in software-properties source package in Focal: Won't Fix Bug description: Software properties add-apt-repository currently does not support adding private PPAs. software-properties should connect to the API and observe that it gets permission denied trying to read the ppa.
