However, it's very Ubuntu-specific. Rather than copy the script, even with the Ubuntu-specifics taken out, I'd rather integrate select pieces into sbuild proper such as into sbuild-createchroot. If the other scripts are of a similar nature, I don't think they are suitable with significant modification; it may be worth looking at correcting the deficiencies in the tools they wrap. > Should these script moved from ubuntu-dev-tools into devscripts? > > Most of the script are written in Python.

Rewriting would be fairly simple, and may be beneficial in removing the Ubuntu-specific bits. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
