Re: [opensuse-buildservice] [PATCH] Add --build-uid to osc and --uid to build
We use your earlier patch on our internal version of osc and build.
It's very useful for doing incremental builds by being able to rsync in
data into the chroot and have the permissions work from inside and out
the chroot.

So this is an old patch that I've refreshed and incorporated feedback.

Can you take a look and confirm it's OK for me to push.

usage is:

Quite long, what about just using --uid?

I'm using --uid in build and --build-uid in osc (since the config is build-uid
and the opts is --build-uid)

You should better check whether uids still match.

osc shouldn't hard code that setting. Default should be empty ie
don't pass the uid option.

I also allowed "caller" as a value to osc --build-uid as suggested by darix.
