In the Quick Start, you mention setting the permissions on /usr/share/sources to 774:

$ sudo chmod 0774 /usr/share/sources

I suspect that this should be either 0770 or 0775, since a directory without execute/search access is not generally productive. If 774 is intentional, this probably should be called out, since it is atypical.

    Also, the chmod can be done in one step with

    chmod 6774 (or 6775), although this is less descriptive.
