comment key import with apt-add-repository and own repository possible?
Thanks for this very detailed answer, John! I have indeed published the public key to keyserver.ubuntu.com and thought apt-add-repository would fetch the key from there. But this seems to fail. I don't know why, because even with -m the output is not very detailed. At the moment I am just deploying a deb-package, that includes the key. In the post install script of the package the repository gets added and the key is imported. Could be worse, but having a one-liner would be nicer. Especially since apt-add-repository seemed to offer that capability.

Okay, then add-apt-repository should be renamed to add-ppa-repository. You are right, you have to trust the developer or maintainer to not break your system or sneak in bad stuff. But that is the same for PPAs and own repositories. In that regard there is nothing special about PPAs. If you are adding 3rd party repositories to your system you should trust them or you shouldn't add the repository. We are using our own repositories for proprietary customer software and deployment of modified packages within closed networks. Nothing that would fit PPA.

comment Best practice: version numbers for own packages
Wow, this is confusing - but I thing I'm starting to understand this better. Thanks @ThomasMoulard, you are right. The revision is a bad version number. I think I will stick with your suggestion and do something like this: fish_1.23~git20130508 But if something goes wrong, I'll need to rebuild a package with the same date/revision again. Is this what I'll use the debian revision for? Like: fish_1.23~git20130508-brejoc1

Thank you very much! This seems to be the best possible solution without extending the functionality of the application lens.
