The sbuild package in unstable is a fork of the sbuild used by the
buildds. IMHO the objectives are quite different, while the original one
is aimed at building packages supplied by buildd, the one in the archive
is aimed at making life easier for package maintainers. They have
different features and release cycles.

Anyway, you can get your buildd's sbuild at

deb http://db.debian.org/ debian-admin/

It would be nice if the source was avaiable for that as well, though, in
order to perhaps sync the two packages a bit in the future.

Debian admins, could you do this please?
