pbuilder - a personal builder for debian packages

I have been playing with the idea of pbuilder, and been writing this piece.
It looks strikingly similar to some other programs ...

Anyway, it is a convenient program to create a chroot system,
and build Debian packages inside it.

To use: 

# apt-get install pbuilder
# pbuilder create 
# pbuilder build something-1.2-1.dsc


# pbuilder update
# pbuilder build something-1.2.1.dsc

apt-line is :

deb http://www.netfort.gr.jp/~dancer/debian-packages/pbuilder/ ./

By default, everything is stuffed inside /var/cache/pbuiler, 
and you will see the resulting .debs in /var/cache/pbuilder/results
