fakechroot is hosted on Alioth. I can add to the project anyone who
want to help.

There also two known forks of fakechroot: kfakechroot from Klik
project and libfakechroot-cross from Slind project. These forks have
different goals and are fitted to their main projects.

I would like to see the fakechroot the universal library which work on
different systems (Debian, RedHat, FreeBSD) so please do not modify it
in a way that break a portability.

The fakechroot has own Wiki: http://fakechroot.alioth.debian.org/
