In another thread I was wondering about simplifying the addition of PPAs - with Ubuntu having been out half a year I find I need many. I found two scripts which take out most/all of the trouble:

The last one is simpler. You can add a PPA in the normal way (or a few together) and that will grab the keys. It's the key part that was always tedious.
The first one does the whole lot. Call it several times with your PPAs (the webpages) as arguments or just call once with no argument and it pops up a dialog box.
You need an ubuntuforums login for the first script. If there's much interest I'll put it in the Pastebin.
The script from the second link seems to do the same as blackgr's script:
I wonder if one works better than the other.
BTW if you wish to contact me, send me an e-mail instead of a PM.
It'll be good for the mean time, but in karmic they made it a lot easier to add ppa's. Just do sudo add-apt-repository ppa:<Repository_Name>
I say never be complete, I say stop being perfect, I say lets evolve, let the chips fall where they may.
The script from bazaar.launchpad.net/~oldman/ seems more advanced than blackgr's. The latter requires sudo wheras the former gains permissions through the target actions. The latter has very terse output: "Please Wait...", followed by "OK, OK, OK, ...".
