In that case, using cowbuilder instead could work, though I'm not sure
if it just hooks through the `pbuilder' command or if it actually uses
the chroot base image itself. Based on what you said though, I assume
the latter, which sounds like kinda crappy program design :P
I'd like to see a feature to use cowbuilder's chroot instead, though I
don't know of the technical challenges there. Certainly such a feature
would make it easier to use and thus run more often.
Better yet, if we could periodically run it on all of the modules in
our SVN repository (pkg-perl) and display the logs, then it would give
us a nice to-do list of things to look at.
