Launchpad's PPA

Hey. I was updating my previously made transmission package to version 1.21 and in between I came across Launchpad's Personal Package Archives (PPA), which gave me 1GB APT repository with automated binary build for x86 and AMD64. It has web interface for searching packages and was very easy to use. All I did was uploaded a signed source package and the server did the rest; building binaries and indexing and adding packages the repository. Well, that's the first time I use such service, so maybe that's why it's very interesting to me : ))

Here is what you need to add to your software sources to get updates:
deb hardy main
deb-src hardy main
