add-apt-repository [OPTIONS] REPOSITORY
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.
