Why not a bit more generic and see mock as a tool to build rpms in a clean
and consistent buildroot. After all, we heard that SuSE RPMs can be built
with it too. And that's a feat s the last time I looked SuSE RPMs were
pretty bad dependency-wise.
then the suse config would have a different buildsys-build package/set

ack IMHO. Even though plague needs still a bit of work it seems. livna's
plague installation only became stable as soon as I sent them a few
patches, which dcbw handed me on irc after bugging him about a few
which is why plague gets worked on. good.

This would be simply great. Right now, the cycle of cearting the chroot,
installing the base-packages, doing the full depsolve-cycle, building the
rpm and then removing the buildroot again takes ages.
Something faster there might be great.
look at the caching patch jochen submitted some time back. Clean it up
and write up what it is it does and we'll put it in.

Well, nobody expects you to like it, it just has to be in mock. ;-D
which is why i put it under ambivalence.
