Bug Description

When trying to add a ppa :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jason-scheunemann/ppa

Exception in thread Thread-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 525, in __bootstrap_inner
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/softwareproperties/", line 60, in run
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/softwareproperties/", line 79, in add_ppa_signing_key
    '\"signing_key_fingerprint\": \"(\w*)\"', lp_page)[0]
IndexError: list index out of range

Then I realised launchpad was under maintenance. It would be nice if the message was a bit more user friendly.

How about fixing this in Karmic too? Lucid hasn't been released yet.
