Bug#175266: ITP: dchroot -- Tools for creating and maintaining chroots on Debian machines.

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-01-03
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : dchroot
  Version         : x.y.z
  Upstream Author : David Kimdon <dwhedon@debian.org>
* URL             : http://people.debian.org/~dwhedon/debian/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Tools for creating and maintaining chroots on Debian machines.

This package contains scripts, documentation and programs that make it
easier to provide multiple chroots on one system.  A typical
installation might provide 'stable', 'testing' and 'unstable' chroots.
Users can move between chroots as necessary.

I have a preliminary package at :

 deb-src http://people.debian.org/~dwhedon/debian/ ./
 deb http://people.debian.org/~dwhedon/debian/ ./

Comments appreciated.

It is similar to the dchroot that is installed on various Debian
machines but it supports a configuration file and has a few options.  It
started out life as dchroot.c in BenC's homedir on vore.

In the future I'd like to add some scripts that make creating various
chroots painless (call to debootstrap perhaps excluding certain
packages, mount -o bind, symlinks for /etc/resolve.conf and friends,
etc.)  I keep a variety of chroots on my machines at home and I'd like
to make it simple for others to do the same.
