Ring PPA / Debian package: provide one-click-install
Currently it is very difficult for non-power-users to get Ring automatically updated when using the Debian package from the website.
This is because configuring the PPA requires command line operations. We want everybody to be able to use our GNU/Linux GNOME client.
What we should do: If the user decides to install ring.cx's Debian package (instead of the official Debian / Ubuntu package), then he should be able to do it within the space of just a few clicks. No command line stuff. If user agrees, the Debian package should set up the PPA and the GnuPG release key as well. This is important for security updates.
What we should keep in mind:
Don't be intrusive. We should always ask the user before adding our key + repository to their trusted peers. This action should be explained in very simple yet meaningful words.
Keep it clean. There are many ways to do it, and most of them are ugly. We should follow https://wiki.debian.org/DebianRepository/UseThirdParty
