How does one install firefox nightly on ubuntu maveric (10.10) ?

This is what I have done so far

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firefox-trunk

I get the following error : Unable to locate package firefox-trunk

Here is a log of the update command, in which it has s surprising IGN next to mozilla daily ppa.
