Support as PPA dependency

Asked by Hiroaki Nakamura

Currently we can add a repository only on PPA as PPA dependency.

Could you support adding as PPA dependency?

Specifically I would like to add the following apt line as described in

deb $(lsb_release -cs)-pgdg main

I'd like to build packages of
for PostgreSQL versions distributed at

Thanks in advance!

I'm sorry - this is not going to happen. It's a hard policy that anything that's used as a build-dependency in Launchpad must be in Launchpad itself, so you'll have to import the relevant packages into a Launchpad PPA (if they aren't there already) and get them built in Launchpad.
