Hi Roberto,
I read it and it seems great! Haven't had a change to build anything yet
but I'm sure it will help me when I do. a minor typo, search for
'since'. As someone commented, I believe pbuilder does not clean the
chroot. for slow archs like arm and m68k, it would be inefficient to
rebuild all the dependencies for building KDE on arm after every change,
as an example.  And I dont think someone making a personal packages
would want to waste the time to clean it.  Keep up the great work,
you'll be a DD before Etch (at least I hope so) is released!
