  cannot add PPA easily

Status in software-center package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu is supposed to be community driven and user friendly but one of the most regularly needed things I cannot do easily.  To add a PPA you have to mess around with 25 different steps.  
  3)What I expect is a one click 'add PPA to Ubuntu' from any website.  Since this is possible with a copy-to-clipboard coding in a website like www.bit.ly, it should be possible to visit any website with a PPA and simply click a button that says 'Add PPA' or "+PPA" and then it automatically ends up as a source and able to be installed shortly after that.
  4)What happened: I had to do a crazy number of advanced steps!

  Thanks for fixing this bug asap!
