I'll setup the next buildd to use LVM on the chroot partition so we can try
it out... 
I suppose the machine to arrive end of this or beginning of next week. DHL
is already instructed to pick up the machine in Nuernberg, so it should be
ready for final setup and such by the end of next week. This will hopefully
bring the backlog down as well.

Well, I was aiming at those situation where sbuild starts a build, installs
packages and discovers at that situation that one build-dep is not already
build. ;)
