PPA Purge Added To The Official Ubuntu 10.10 Repositories, New Version Works With Linux Mint And Other Ubuntu Derivatives

Great news for those of you who use a lot of PPAs: PPA Purge has been added to the official Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat repositories.

A quick reminder of what's PPA Purge:

PPA Purge can remove a PPA and downgrade all the packages you've installed from that PPA to the official version in the Ubuntu repositories. An example: suppose you add the c-korn/vlc PPA and install VLC 1.1.1 but you want to go back to VLC 1.0.6 which is available in the Ubuntu official repositories. Using PPA Purge, the c-korn/vlc PPA will be removed and VLC 1.1.1 will be downgraded to version 1.0.6 (there's one catch though: make sure you don't have any other PPAs with VLC 1.1.1 or 1.1.0 and so on).
