Seriously? A chroot takes ~600MB. At build time, even for the most dep
heavy application, I doubt you will go much beyond 1GB plus space for
the build files. Say 1.5GB for most packages.
How do you build packages against [(community-)testing] or not
[testing] as required? Or do you not help in the rebuilds for library
I am very much of the opinion that if you can not build a package in a
clean chroot, then you should not build the package at all. Fixing a
bug quickly is no excuse for making the bug in the first place.
