You bet!

A PPA stands for Personal Package Archive, it is your very own personal
Ubuntu repository, where you can upload packages of all different kinds.
Wonderful for learning, experimenting, doing backports, a place to
publish nightly builds, to let a QA team work with before publishing to
an official repository, etc. More details on how to use them here:


Once you upload, packages are built on all the official Ubuntu
architectures, any person or team in launchpad.net can have a free PPA.

For example, I run a cron script that creates nightly builds of the bzr
package, which lets me test a daily snapshot of bzr on all my dev machines:

Hope that helps!
