In previous Ubuntu releases adding a PPA in Software Sources imported an authentication key automatically. But since I installed 11.10 this feature is gone, so I must save and import the key manually. Is it a bug, or I can just change something in configs to get autoimport back?

If you add the ppa from the command line it will automatically import the key for you.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:user/package
