My PPA Repository for Filthy Pants (HandBrake Repository)

After much more time and effort than I care to admit, I finally got Canonical's build servers to successfully build deb binaries for HandBrake in my PPA repository.

From here on out, I will no longer distribute packages through Rapidshare, which some people didn't like, and will exclusively use the PPA repository. I will regularly build development packages of HandBrake with both the GTK and QT4 GUIs (the CLI version will also be included with the GTK package).

To access my PPA repository through apt (so updates happen properly and so forth), hop on a terminal and type:
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
and add these lines at the bottom:
#Filthy Pants PPA
deb jaunty main
deb-src jaunty main
Save and close, then type:
sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver 0x065fda2d23cfea71e753d04703e1fe8b2796dec2
After that, type:
sudo aptitude update
and you're all set.
