Package: piuparts
Version: 0.40ubuntu1
Severity: wishlist

Dear developers,

in some cases it could be useful have an option in piuparts able to
use an existing chroot, already decompressed, insteat of a basetgz.

This is useful when you use pbuilder with "--no-targz" option, 
that creates a chroot within a directory.

This patch implements this option in piuparts, can you please
consider to import it in the git repository?

Thanks in advance,
