[opensuse-buildservice] [PATCH] Make passwd, gshadow and group compatibly with Ubuntu 9.10
I've got a patch so that a Ubuntu chroot can be reused without a clean
being needed:

Is there a fix for this:

user abuild has an entry in /etc/shadow, but its password field
in /etc/passwd is not set to 'x'
pwck: no changes
Please correct the error and rerun `/sbin/shadowconfig on'

When building against xUbuntu_9.10 using build-2009.07.27, it keeps
reinstall all the .debs. Do .deb based workareas not have detection
that packages are already installed in the chroot like .rpm based
chroots do? Or do I need to upgrade to a newer build? We're still
using OBS 1.5 for the server, so I didn't want to upgrade build if it
might break compatibility.

It worked latetly for me. You may try to upgrade osc and esp. the build
script first on your workstation to test again.

okay, I was wrong here. This is currently not supported by the build script.
A partial fix is in svn now, but it is not complete.
