This includes two sbuild hooks and a command line tool to setup and
maintain build chroots that are as close as possible to a standard
Launchpad sbuild chroot.
The sbuild-launchpad-chroot command can be used to setup, update and
destroy those chroots. A schroot hook will also automatically update
them should an update be available at the start of a build.
Those chroots also come with a series of useful aliases allowing the
user to easily choose which pockets and components should be available
for the build.

sbuild-launchpad-chroot (0.13) xenial; urgency=medium
* Fix updating chroots which crashed because there is no series parameter
passed to sbuild-launchpad-chroot in that case. Fortunately we already get
series from config/Launchpad.

* Rewrite sources.list after creating/updating the chroot in case we get it
from Launchpad with the wrong release name.

* Fix PEP-8.
* Add support for multiple backing-stores:
- btrfs
- directory
- overlayfs
* Auto-detect the backing-store, preferring btrfs, then overlayfs,
then directory.

sbuild-launchpad-chroot (0.6) utopic; urgency=medium
* Install qemu-user-static if necessary given the requested build chroot.
* Define personality when building in a 32-bit chroot from a 64-bit system.
* debian/control: add ubuntu-dev-tools to Depends: it's used when creating
the chroot to get the current system's dpkg architecture.
* Default newly-created chroots to /var/lib/schroot/chroots rather than
/var/lib/schroot/chroot, as for mk-sbuild. (LP: #1248974)
* Still require sbuild-launchpad-chroot to be run using sudo, but use a
throw-away temporary directory for launchpadlib; which is removed when
sbuild-launchpad-chroot ends. (LP: #1248976)

[ Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre ]
* Add a minimal progress indicator for chroot download.
[ Stéphane Graber ]
* Bump standards to 3.9.5, no change needed.

sbuild-launchpad-chroot (0.4) trusty; urgency=medium
* Add locking to the update function to avoid the case where two
builds using the same chroot are both trying to update the same path.
