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.
