mockchain has grown a couple more options:

-r chroot

originally the chrootname was the first argument – but that became an annoyance and limitation for some other plans so I just made it -r. This is now required to make it work

I also made it so the pkgs you specify can be local pkgs or they can be http[s] urls to pkgs. mockchain will fetch and build them for you. This is in order to achieve some other evil plans I have.

 

spherical cow

I wanted to make sure people knew the background on spherical cow:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spherical_cow

having worked as a sysadmin in a physics department this was a bit of a running gag so the name amuses me.

It was good to be amused by things while working in the physics dept 🙂
