    Cool! I'm using it in OLPC's School Server, and recently hit a bug
    with it. Report and patch here
    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=460753 - Piotr has seen
    the patch and seemed to agree with it.

    cheers,

    fakechroot is hosted on Alioth. I can add to the project anyone who
    want to help.

    There also two known forks of fakechroot: kfakechroot from Klik
    project and libfakechroot-cross from Slind project. These forks have
    different goals and are fitted to their main projects.

    I would like to see the fakechroot the universal library which work on
    different systems (Debian, RedHat, FreeBSD) so please do not modify it
    in a way that break a portability.

    The fakechroot has own Wiki: http://fakechroot.alioth.debian.org/
