Ubuntu Server 12.10 add-apt-repository

Today I was trying to install Oracle Java 7 (aka 1.7) on a Ubuntu Server 12.10 and was greeted by this lovely error,

From what I remembered when I encountered this problem before, all I needed to install was,

But with Ubuntu Server 12.10 you also now need to install,

After installing the "software-properties-common" package I was again able to install PPA repositories from the terminal again, as you used to be able to.
Also as a side note, as of Ubuntu 11.04 there is now a symlink for "apt-add-repository" to fall inline with all the other "apt" commands. Since all the other relating "apt" commands already begins with a "apt", this totally makes sense to me!
So now you can either use "apt-add-repository" or "add-apt-repository" to add PPA repositories.
