[Bug 409696] Re: [cowbuilder-dist] doesn't find dependencies when building in sid chroot

Circumvention:
a .pbuilderrc file with the following characteristics--
DISTRIBUTION="$DIST"
MIRRORSITE="http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/"

where the MIRRORSITE needs to match that used in the ubuntu-dev-tools config file,
if specified.

I've proposed a bzr merge with a candidate patch.

A copy of the built patch is available in ppa:jsjgruber/ppa as version
0.140~jsg1ppa1.

Its i386 build log is at https://launchpadlibrarian.net/98099696
/buildlog_ubuntu-precise-i386.ubuntu-dev-
tools_0.140~jsg1ppa1_BUILDING.txt.gz

To test (while not running on lucid):

Move any .pbuilderrc aside.

pbuilder-dist lucid create
pbuilder-dist lucid login
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

Sources should all refer to lucid repositories at the same website (should match the
/etc/apt/sources.list in the lucid-base.cow directory tree.) Without the fix this file
will list the current build distribution among the correct ones.

Attempt to install python with apt-get install python

It should offer to download and install python rather than declaring that there is no
candidate.
