Bug#315104: ITP: schroot -- Execute commands in a chroot environment

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Roger Leigh <rleigh@debian.org>

* Package name    : schroot
  Version         : 0.1.0
  Upstream Author : Roger Leigh <rleigh@debian.org>
* URL             : http://people.debian.org/~rleigh/schroot/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Execute commands in a chroot environment

 schroot allows users to execute commands or interactive shells
 in different chroots.  Any number of named chroots may be
 created, and access permissions given to each, including root
 access for normal users, on a per-group basis.  Additionally,
 schroot can switch to a different user in the chroot, using PAM
 for authentication and authorisation.  All operations are logged
 for security.
 schroot shares most of its options with dchroot, but offers
 vastly more functionality.

The above URL is temporary.  It should shortly be moved from a local
Arch repository to buildd-tools CVS on Alioth.  sbuild will use it
in the future to allow a "true-chroot" mode for apt-get/dpkg.
