Making a public PPA a private one

Asked by Delmic BV on 2013-06-11

Hello,
I'd like to have one team to manage both some public PPAs and a private PPA. For now I've only managed to create public PPAs in my public team, and private PPAs in a private team.

Could you turn a currently (empty) public PPA into a private one? (or how can I do it myself?)
Precisely, if you could make this PPA private, that'd lovely:

Cheers

I've made that private for you as requested.

Thanks, it's now private.
However I still have a problem, I don't see the access information (dedicated password). Usually for private PPAs, the "Adding this PPA to your system" section is different and show the URL with login:password for the currently logged in user, but I don't see it for this PPA.

Is there something obvious that I've missed? How can I find out the password for each allowed user?

Thanks

Your unique password is only generated when you view the relevant PPA
subscription on <https://launchpad.net/~/+archivesubscriptions> for the
first time. Once you've visited that it will be shown on the PPA page.
PPA owners can't currently see other users' passwords.

Thanks! I had missed this page. It's all fine now :-)
