Bug Description

Please backport pbuilder-scripts 17 (universe) from quantal to precise.

Reason for the backport:
Greatly increases productivity when doing package builds on a daily basis.

Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:adam-stokes/pbuilder-scripts -s quantal -d precise pbuilder-scripts

* precise:
[X] Package builds without modification
[X] pbuilder-scripts installs cleanly and runs

No reverse dependencies

Additional Notes:
I've been running this successfully on Precise to handle package
builds for Lucid, Precise, and Quantal.

While I will not argue that everyone has their own tools, but have you seen ubuntu-dev-tools?
pget equivalent is pull-lp-source which can do this:
$ pull-lp-source autofs (will pull the source package from raring)
$ pull-lp-source autofs5 lucid-updates ($distro-$pocket to pull from)
$ pull-lp-source autofs5 5.0.4-3.1ubuntu5.1 (exact version to pull)

Also there is $ pull-debian-source which does the same thing but fetches from debian or snapshots.
Above includes _any_ of the old releases.

pcreate, pudate, pbuild etc can be used with pbuilder-dist

$ pbuilder-dist $distro [$arch] $action

Where actions are: create, update, build, clean, login, execute.

Plus it supports symlinks, e.g. you can create a symlink $ pbuilder-dist-lucid, and it will tab-complete & default to lucid.

So my question is why do you want these, instead of using pbuilder-dist & pull-lp-source from the ubuntu-dev-tools package which is already in precise and has all of these tools supporting all releases (past and development).

(it can even use cowbuilder for faster build)

Further discussed this with mterry and filed a bug 1078920 to add unique pbuilder-script's features into ubuntu-dev-tools / pbuilder-dist.

In the mean time this is a valid request to improve development on lucid.
