I understand pbuilder works very well. There were some
debootstrap problems initially when I tried it and then my
broadband connection went away.
I'd packaged buildd/sbuild (sort of) for my own use for checking
out m68k build failures so I thought I'd ITP sbuild. If
wanna-build gets packaged, this package will probably go away.
If you can use/adapt any of the scripts, feel free. I'll have a
look at pbuilder and see if there's anything I can steal. :-)
