ppa:mozillateam/ppa gone?

I am trying to install firefox in a arm64 Ubuntu 22.04 Docker container from the mozillateam ppa, but it seems not to be available anymore. I also could not find it searching it manually at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas.

Is the ppa really gone?

root@efb6e2e122ee:/home# add-apt-repository -y ppa:mozillateam/ppa

I experience the same issue in my x86_64 Ubuntu 22.04 VM.
I also get a 503 when I try to do

add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa 

of https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ubuntu/ppa that seems to exist certainly. Maybe there currently is an issue with launchpad?

ppa.launchpad.net is currently down according to the Canonical Status Page.

This should be a temporary issue that should be resolved soon(ish).
