Bug Description

I am trying to use vm-builder to automatically add PPAs to the resulting VMs. This works partially, as the PPA is added to the /etc/apt/sources.list file but the corresponding key is not imported.

This an example of the commands I am using:
sudo vmbuilder kvm ubuntu --hostname=1010-64-libo --suite=maverick --dest ~/Documents/VM/1010-64-libo --mem=512 --libvirt=qemu:///system --proxy= --arch=amd64 --timezone=EST --addpkg=openssh-server --addpkg=ubuntu-desktop --ppa=libreoffice/ppa --tmpfs=4096 -v -office/ppa --tmpfs=4096 -v -o

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

To clarify, the packages from ppas do get installed, but the key is not available for apt-get updates after installation.

Marking this confirmed (as I've just tried it), and low priority since packages do get installed and the resulting system is otherwise fine.

Changed in vm-builder (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed
importance: Undecided → Low
