If you have any sbuild/schroot questions, please do give me a shout
if you get stuck.

While schroot does support LVM snapshots, you might also want to
look at using Btrfs snapshots (faster and more reliable, IME), or
an overlay filesystem like aufs.  schroot supports both of these
for snapshots as well.

Example configuration for Btrfs:

description=Debian sid/amd64 autobuilder

/srv/chroots-btrfs is a Btrfs filesystem, with /srv/chroots-btrfs/sid
being a Btrfs subvolume containing the build environment.
