The sbuild suite of programs (buildd and sbuild) are used to build binary
packages from source packages. sbuild does the actual package building.

sbuild uses chroots to build packages, which act as virtual, minimal
operating system installations dedicated to package building. This means
that a number of environments may be used for building simultaneously on
the same machines, for example stable, testing, unstable and experimental.
When coupled with schroot to create snapshots of chroots, sbuild may be
used to build many packages in parallel. A chroot environment allows
packages to be built in a controlled, clean environment. sbuild installs
only essential and build-essential packages, plus those in the package
build dependencies.

I have been using it locally for a month or so to build debs locally, it's a mock equivalent for dpkg.

Scratch build for rawhide: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=32902239

I'm using it on f29.

Taking this review.

Comment 2 Neal Gompa 2019-11-23 17:15:19 UTC
Dridi, please change this to have a `Requires(pre)` and `Requires` on `apt >= 1.9`. The `_apt` user and group is created by that package.

I unfortunately no longer have the bandwidth to work on sbuild.
