Hi,

This tool overlaps with sbuild-createchroot a bit, but is more complete. It
will build up a schroot and install everything that is needed to run under
sbuild including location configurations, final package sets, etc.

It works with both Debian and Ubuntu. It currently lives in the
"ubuntu-dev-tools" package, so some level of coordination may be needed to
move it to sbuild.

Thanks,

-Kees

Hi,

I would like to see more integration of mk-sbuild to schroot/sbuild
system.  (Though the command name mk-sbuild sounds a bit inconsistent.)

When you do this, please consider to provide guide document with
intended typical usages and difference:

mk-sbuild
  aimed at package building with through-away FS
  user with root access
  recommend to use a local cache server like apt-cacher-ng
  (sbuild lacks pbuilder like package caching capability)

sbuild-createchroot
  buildd environment for user to login to build package as non-root.

It was confusing for me ....

If possible include key contents of 
  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PbuilderHowto,
  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SbuildLVMHowto.
in some doc directory should help mk-sbuild user.

Also, support of "cp -al / cow-shell" to create hardlinked copies and
copy-on-write environment with cowdancer package will be nice for both
mk-sbuild and schroot.  Then sbuild speeds up without special FS
requirements (vs. tar.xz).

Osamu
