[Piuparts-devel] Missing depends on lsb-base, need your help

The lsb-base package has been essential de-facto for some time,
because util-linux used to have it as a dependency.

It is not anymore, so it is now possible to have a chroot without
lsb-base to build packages. I'm doing that, but sometimes it
fails. This is a recent example:


Since this is an issue of installing a package and then uninstalling it,
it seems a suitable task for piuparts.

So: would be possible for you to remove lsb-base from your "base" chroot
in your piuparts laboratory? If this is checked automatically in your setup,
we will discover all the bugs like the one above a lot faster.
