speeding up bootstrap-vz VirtualBox images generation ?
Feel free to suggest another venue for discussing bootstrap-vz issues.
It seems to me that the qemu-nbd mount of the target partition slows
down a lot the installation (debootstrap, apt/dpkg) done inside it,
compared to host filesystem.
I wonder how necessary it is to perform installation inside this mount
setup, instead of installing on the host, and then copying at once the
installed layout to the vmdk.
I understand that some mount relation between /boot and / probably renders the
process non trivial, but I kind of think that the builds could become
way fasters this way.
Does it make sense ?
