Or is it Colin Watson?  Our plot to confuse everyone is working, I
see... :)

Actually it was me, and the relevant URL is:


It's also handy, I think, for running a base woody system, and then
having a chroot with unstable that you log into for development, running
the latest apps, etc.

Now, what I really want is for someone to make a package like pbuilder
that can use an existing chroot, without untarring it each time, because
that's slow.  Shouldn't be hard to do, I just haven't found the time.
