Tool for building Debian binary packages from Debian sources
The sbuild suite of programs (buildd and sbuild) are used to build
binary packages from source packages. sbuild does the actual package
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 envionment allows packages to be built in a
controlled, clean environment. sbuild installs only essential and
build-essential packages, plus those in the package build
