Source: chromium-browser
Version: 14.0.835.202~r103287-1
Severity: important

On my system, I'm rebuilding packages using a custom pbuilder chroot where the 
apt sources point to a hand built repository.  Because of this custom setup, 
lsb_release in the chroot returns "testing/unstable" as the release.  That, in 
turn, causes the chromium-browser package to fail to build as follows:

 debian/rules build
test -x debian/rules
mkdir -p "/tmp/buildd/chromium-browser-14.0.835.202~r103287/src"
