Severity: wishlist
Owner: Tzafrir Cohen <tzafrir@debian.org>

* Package name    : mock
  Version         : 1.1.28
  Upstream Author : Clark Williams <williams@redhat.com>

  Description     : build rpm packages inside a chroot

 Mock creates chroots and builds rpms in them. Its only task is to
 reliably populate a chroot and attempt to build a package in that
 chroot. It is used be the Fedora Extras project to build their
 packages cleanly.

Mock was previously packaged in Debian, but unmaintained and eventually
I believe it can be handy for us and would like to re-introduce it.

A packaging repository will shortly be on
Test packages (for Wheezy) will shortly be on
