Package: ratt
Version: 0.0~git20150816.0.b060319-1
Severity: wishlist


ratt currently seems to unconditionally pass --dist=sid to sbuild. This
is problematic because:

 1. it requires a local chroot with the name "sid" but it might also be
    named "unstable" for example

 2. it means that only a sid/unstable chroot can be used which makes
    ratt less useful to test in other environments or to be used outside
    of Debian (like Ubuntu)

Maybe ratt should:

 - have an option that lets pass arbitrary sbuild arguments
 - have an option that lets one select the sbuild chroot
 - use the Distribution value from the .changes file to choose the


cheers, josch
