Re: sbuild and bind mounts

Hi Johannes,

thanks for your answer!

Ahh, does that mean sbuild creates the apt repo files itself and adds it
automatically to the sources.list?

This would indeed help a lot, but I need one more piece of information:
I need to add pinning information (I guess via --chroot-setup-commands)
to give the above extra repository a very low pin so that by default
packages are taken from the normal archives.

Is the path for the above extra repository (--extra-package=/path/to/dir/)

Since I don't want to do this permanently but only for the staged
builds, the above method would be by far more usable.

Indeed, I found the --chroot-setup-commands but I didn't spot the
Unfortunately the man page seems not to give the information where the
extra repository is generated.

Thanks for your help!
