procenv runs itself as part of its build (at the end of course :-). What this means is that you can now see what that build environment is like by looking at the build logs:
DEP-8) tests -- where package builds automatically trigger tests that run on an environment very similar to a "normal" system -- are a hot topic. procenv is DEP-8 enabled, so again, we get to see exactly what such an autopkgtest environment provides.
With this information, you can perform some rather interesting analysis:
- See the environment a "buildd" provides.
- Compare a buildd environment versus your "normal" workstation environment.
- Compare a Debian buildd environment with an Ubuntu build environment.
- Compare an Ubuntu buildd environment with an autopkgtest environment.
Please report any bugs you find here.
