Did the chroot environment start empty and only have the minimum
requirements copied in for each package, or was it re-used from build to build
or do you remember?

AFAIK the buildroot that the internal autobuild set up was always a
fresh one. If you use the build script for a local build, it will
reuse installed packages as long as they are needed for the next
package and you don't explicitly request a clean build root by passing
--clean. BTW, that parameter is still valid for 'osc build'.

'osc build' calls 'build' which calls 'rpmbuild'. And YES, build
checks first for any packages not _required_ for the current build
(and uninstalls any unneeded stuff), and installs any missing stuff.


Have you ever noticed that the Klingons are all speaking unix?
"Grep ls awk chmod." "Mknod ksh tar imap."
"Wall fsck yacc!" (that last is obviously a curse of some sort)
