Package: schroot
Version: 1.4.23-1+broder1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

overlayfs is the newest in the long line of union filesystems, and
seems to be currying favor at the moment. Ubuntu is planning to pull
aufs in favor of overlayfs during the Precise development cycle.

This fairly straightforward patch adds overlayfs to the set of union
filesystems that schroot supports.
