buildd-setup-chroot requires a local archive, no? I've never
used it. I included a script and some instructions on building
pot./sid chroots starting with the base2.2 tarball, copying,
dist-upgrading. Sucks hard, but I know it works.
I had some problems with debootstrap in the past (haven't looked
recently) so I thought I'd wait a while before using it here. Didn't
know about buildd.chroot.

Which is why I tried to push it on Junichi.:-) I don't really need
another package. The sbuild stuff is simple because my nose is in it
every day but the chroot side is a PITA.
But you've convinced me (I'm easy). I won't have a decent machine for a
couple weeks. I'll check out buildd.chroot and debootstrap then.

I packaged the sbuild with the patch Ryan posted to -disc. CVS
still has the FetchFile stuff as fallback. My understanding is
that would be removed if it works OK over the next few weeks.
