git-pbuilder 1.42

A minor update to my glue script for building software with pdebuild and git-buildpackage. (Yes, still needs to get rewritten in Python.)

This release stops using the old backport location for oldstable builds since oldstable is now wheezy, which merged the backports archive into the regular archive location. The old location is still there for squeeze just in case anyone needs it.

It also adds a new environment variable, GIT_PBUILDER_PDEBUILDOPTIONS, that can be used to pass options directly to pdebuild. Previously, there was only a way to pass options to the builder, via pdebuild, but not to configure pdebuild itself. There are some times when that's useful, such as to pass --use-pdebuild-internal. This was based on a patch from Rafał Długołęcki.

You can get the latest version of git-pbuilder from my scripts page.
