Bug#833436: sbuild: adt backend was complete broken by autopkgtest 4 release

Package: sbuild
Version: 0.70.0-1
Severity: important
Control: block -1 by 833407


the autopkgtest 4.0.2 release broke the adt-virt-* interface that
autopkgtest used to provide before this release.

Sbuild thus now lost support for the qemu, ssh and lxc backends that it
used to support by making use of the corresponding adt-virt-* binaries.

I consider this a grave regression for sbuild because being able to use
sbuild to build on a non-native architecture or on foreign hosts were
very useful features.

I urge the autopkgtest maintainers to consider restoring the old


cheers, josch
