Extra info and code examples

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.
