I'm probably stating the obvios but it can be done with:


PKG=$(dpkg-parsechangelog -Ssource)
VERSION=$(dpkg-parsechangelog -SVersion)

set -x
set -e

virsh destroy autopkgtest || true
virsh snapshot-revert autopkgtest $SNAPSHOT
virsh start autopkgtest
autopkgtest -B ../*_${VERSION}_*.deb ../${PKG}_${VERSION}.dsc -- ssh -H $IP -P<rootpw>

(in case running inside pbuilder is not sufficient (eg. because it needs
daemons running, etc.). Not very elaborate but does the job.
