Hi again,

Since I last posted a mail about sbuild, I have implemented the above
two changes.  Due to the large number of changes including and in
addition to the above, I am keen for other folks to test upgrades to
the new sbuild and check if their setup still works properly before I
upload this.

It can be found here:

or in SVN

Please mail any reports to me or to buildd-tools-devel at
