Ubuntu Tweak Coming Soon with PPA Purge

The Ubuntu Tweak blog has just announced that the upcoming version of Ubuntu Tweak will have its own version of PPA Purge, inspired by the PPA Purge in Launchpad. It will be part of the Ubuntu Tweak Package Cleaner:

By using PPA Purge, you will be able to go back to the original packages easily if something happens with the PPA. (I have been somewhat leery about using PPAs myself, unless I know for certain that they won’t interfere with the packages I already have installed. This will fix my concern.)

TualatriX is calling for testers to help in testing the upcoming Ubuntu Tweak. The testing source is available for Ubuntu versions from Hardy through Maverick. It can be added easily, in the more recent versions of Ubuntu, simply by using the command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-tweak-testing/ppa

I have not been able to find any bugs in the version for Maverick.
