sbuild for Debian
-----------------

Initial Setup
=============

The full procedure for setting up a chroot and setting up users is
documented in sbuild-setup(7).  Existing users may need to review
their setup, due to the removal of sudo support. (User setup, part 4).
New users should use sbuild-createchroot(8) to set up a chroot, and
sbuild-adduser(8) to add users.


Chroots
=======

If you don't have an existing chroot, sbuild-createchroot(8) describes
how to set one up.


Helper scripts
==============

See sbuild-abort(1), sbuild-apt(1), sbuild-checkpackages(1),
sbuild-hold(1), sbuild-stats(1), sbuild-update(1), and
sbuild-upgrade(1).  These scripts were previously found in
/usr/share/sbuild, which now contains symbolic links to the new
scripts in /usr/bin.  The symbolic links will be removed following the
release of Lenny.


Extras
======

sbuild-stats
------------
sbuild will keep databases of the time and space that builds
require if a couple files exist:

  touch /var/lib/sbuild/avg-build-{times,space}
  chmod 664 /var/lib/sbuild/avg-build-{times,space}
  chgrp sbuild /var/lib/sbuild/avg-build-{times,space}

These have limited usefulness outside buildd context.  See
the sbuild-stats(1) man page for more info.



An schroot chroot with the same name (or alias) as the distribution
must be available.  For example, to build in an unstable chroot, the
chroot must be named "sbuild-unstable" or "unstable" (in order of
preference).
