add-apt-repository fails to identify Devuan, throws and fails
I'm using Devuan 2.0.
software-properties-common package has an
add-apt-repository script in
/usr/bin. Among other things, it determines what Linux distribution you're using and prepares some sort of a template for
sources.list entries. At the moment, if you run it, it fails thusly:
# add-apt-repository whatever Traceback (most recent call last): ... etc etc... aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for Devuan/ascii
The reason is that it doesn't have patterns to match Devuan distribution names, nor defaults it could use in that case. Slight case of oversight I suppose
