A good tool to search which package contains a file is apt-file. So after
Code: Select all
apt-get install apt-file
and
Code: Select all
apt-file update
an
Code: Select all
apt-file search apt-add-repository
shows me that there is no package (at least in the repos I use, sid and experimental), that contains this file.

One can also use the Debian Package List to search within the package's contents.
