Sourced for environment variables (defined above).

To CHANGE the golden image: sudo schroot -c ${CHROOT_NAME}-source -u root
To ENTER an image snapshot: schroot -c ${CHROOT_NAME}
To BUILD within a snapshot: sbuild -A -d ${SCHROOT_NAME} PACKAGE*.dsc
for example, to update the packages in a golden image: schroot -c ${CHROOT_NAME}-source -u root -- sh -c "apt-get -qq update && apt-get -qy upgrade && apt-get clean" </dev/null
