Bug Description

This is getting super-important particularly for the App Showdown.

We find PPA links through find_ppa_info() already, but we don't make use of it yet, so what we need is:

 - a function which retrieves a source package from a PPA (PPA info + package name as arguments)
 - a function which figures out that the submitted 'tarball' is a text file with PPA info in it (using python-magic maybe?)

The code in lp:~dholbach/apps-brancher/1019300 deals with this now, but it still needs to learn to:
 - deal with updated PPA submissions
 - parse text file submissions for branch/PPA info as well

I just landed this change, it should deal with PPA information in submitted text files now too. I'll restart the brancher now - it will make sense to keep an eye on for now and file bugs as they occur. :)
