Trying to build Debian unstable and testing schroots with mk-sbuild --debootstrap fails

debootstrap (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I tried to set up schroots for Debian unstable and testing with the following command:

mk-sbuild --debootstrap-include=devscripts unstable

Each time, the creation eventually failed with the following warning printed five times:

W: Failure while configuring base packages. This will be re-attempted up to five times.
W: See /var/lib/schroot/chroots/sid-amd64/debootstrap/debootstrap.log for details (possibly the package devscripts is at fault)

I've attached the debootstrap.log file. When I created an schroot for stable, that finished. It's possible this is an upstream bug in Debian's version of devscripts, but I figured I would start here since I'm trying to create these schroots on an Ubuntu system. Tell me if I should file this instead against Debian's debootstrap or devscripts.
