Project page do not need to mention GPG import

Asked by Gauthier POGAM--LE MONTAGNER on 2019-05-14

The import is automatically done when adding a PPA to the system. Therefore, it is not necessary to mention key import on project page.

The system integration of PPA also ensure that GPG key (which is stored in an independent file in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/) is automatically removed from the system when uninstalling the PPA while adding it manually require the user to remove it manually using apt-key.

Gauthier,

Thanks for mentioning this.

I included that step because I noticed that some people are manually adding the PPA in their sources.list file or in the sources.d directory. To keep the instructions simple for everyone, I just listed the key import step.

I'll add a note to clarify.
