[Bug 392887] Re: Cannot delete a PPA

The fix in place deletes the external repository, so there's quite a

Deleting the PPA permanently is quite complicated so we're doing this in
2 stages.  This first stage, which is important to many people, is to
get the external repository deleted while keeping the internal history
in place.

The second stage is to delete all the internal Launchpad references and
remove all trace of it.

The reason this second stage is hard is because a PPAs packages can be
copied and shared between other PPAs so it's not a simple case of
blitzing the database rows.

If anyone wants to get involved and accelerate the implementation of
this second stage, patches are extremely welcome.
