I work for Canonical on the Launchpad team. We've had some requests
for a help page that explains what PPAs are, and how to use them, to
someone who's looking to install software from a PPA.

I think such a document should live in the Ubuntu help world, rather
than on the Launchpad help wiki. I've had a look but I can't find
anything on or that does that job. If
I'm missing something, could you please point me in the right

If there isn't anything, I'd like to write something. Would you be
happy to include that on
