releasing package software-properties version 0.96.27

Fix tests on non-intel arch.

Tests would fail on any arch other than i386 or amd64.
This was because when running on non-intel the test's sourceslist
would have a http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu mirror. The
templates that are read through
 /usr/share/python-apt/templates/Ubuntu.mirrors and Ubuntu.info
would correctly not match the amd64/i386 mirror on non-intel arch.

So.. The fix here is just to use a valid mirror string dependent on
the arch.

Get PPA key signing data from launchpad https rather than keyserver.

Previously adding of a PPA would read the signing key fingerprint from
launchpad and then read the signing key data from keyserver.ubuntu.com
over https.

This changes that to use the newly added getSigningKeyData operation
from launchpad. And uses the launchpad 'devel' api version.
The primary benefit of this is a reduction in the number
of external services that 'add-apt-repository' relies upon.
That means less external services that may be down, and also less
holes poked in egress networking to allow add-apt-repository to work.

There are also 3 other changes/improvements that we found along the way:
 a.) make python2 (pycurl) path follow http redirects.
 b.) use 'mangle_ppa_shortcut' in other paths.
 c.) mangle_ppa_shortcut can now support input with or without 'ppa:' as
     a prefix.

Retry on failed lookups of gpg keys.

Recent events (see bug 1779302) have made keyserver.ubuntu.com (both hkp
and https interfaces) less reliable than they previously were.

The change here retries on failure to read from key server other than
a 404 error.
