add-apt-repository and ppa-purge can't be used repeatedly

Bug #801133 reported by David Henningsson on 2011-06-23
This bug affects 3 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ppa-purge (Ubuntu)
software-properties (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/pulse-testing
sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/pulse-testing
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/pulse-testing

The repository is not re-added in the third step.

Btw, wouldn't it make sense to have ppa-purge and add-apt-repository in the same package as they are, in a sense, their opposites?

I was able to work around by opening the ubuntu software centre, then choosing Edit->Software Sources from the menu. Then I selected the boxes next to the software sources that I had previously tried to add. Click close. Then do sudo apt-get update.
