= Overview
Pbuilder is a building utility for Debian systems based on sbuild.

== pbuilder
=== Parameters
The pbuilder type takes the following arguments :
- ensure: whether the pbuilder should be present
Possible values: "present", "absent"
Defaults to "present"
- release: the Debian/Ubuntu release to be used
Defaults to $lsbdistcodename
- arch: the architecture of the pbuilder (i386, amd64, etc.)
Defaults to $architecture
- methodurl: the URL used to grab the packages from
Defaults to "" (not functional, only useful for "ensure => absent")
- site: a hash used to find the right apt.config directory
(in puppet://${server}/apt/${release}/${arch}/${site})
Defaults to "" (not functional, only useful for "ensure => absent")
- debbuildopts: the options to send to debuild (see `man dpkg-buildpackage`)
Defaults to "-b"
- bindmounts: a list of space-separated directories to bind-mount in the chroot
Defaults to ""
- bindir: where to put the pbuilder script
Defaults to "/usr/local/bin"
- chrootdir: where to put the basetgz tarball
Defaults to "/var/chroot/pbuilder"
- confdir: where to store the configuration for the script
Defaults to "/etc/pbuilder"
- cachedir: where to create the aptcache, build and result directories
Defaults to "/var/cache/pbuilder"
- templaterc: the pbuilderrc ERB template to use
Defaults to "pbuilder/pbuilderrc.erb"
This module assumes the following directories:
- ${confdir}/$name : root for the pbuilder conf
- ${confdir}/$name/pbuilderrc : configuration file for the pbuilder
- ${confdir}/$name/apt.config : apt config file (including sources.list) for the pbuilder
- ${confdir}/$name/hooks : hooks for the pbuilder
- ${cachedir}/$name : root for the pbuilder cache
- ${cachedir}/$name/aptcache : aptcache for the pbuilder
- ${cachedir}/$name/build : build directory for the pbuilder
- ${cachedir}/$name/result : result packages for the pbuilder
- ${chrootdir}/base_$name.tgz : compressed chroot for the pbuilder
=== Examples
==== Set a pbuilder using the release and architecture of the host
pbuilder { "feisty":
methodurl => "",
==== Destroy an old existing pbuilder
pbuilder { "dapper":
ensure => absent
==== Set an am64 pbuilder for the etch release, including sources in the .changes
pbuilder { "etch-amd64":
release => etch,
methodurl => "",
debbuildopts => "-sa"
=== Important note
You have to provide a valid apt.config directory for your pbuilder.
You can use the apt class for that, and notify the private pbuilder_update Exec.
