NAME

       sbuild-checkpackages - check the package list in a sbuild chroot against a reference list

SYNOPSIS

       sbuild-checkpackages [-h|--help | -V|--version  | -l|--list | -s|--set] CHROOT

DESCRIPTION

       sbuild-checkpackages  compares  the  package  list  in an sbuild chroot (dpkg status file)
       against a reference  list  of  packages.   The  differences  between  the  two  lists  are
       displayed,  showing  the  changes  to  remove and install in order to return the chroot to
       match the reference list.

       The reference list may be set from the dpkg status file; this must be  done  initially  in
       order  to  have  a  baseline  reference  for  comparison.   The chroot should only include
       essential and build-essential packages, plus the extra packages that sbuild needs such  as
       fakeroot.
