+ Schroot is an evolution of the Unix "chroot" command, with
+enhancements that make it well suited for software development,
+especially for testing build and install scripts such as Slackbuild
+scripts where virtualization is not necessary.
+ Schroot supports many types of chrooted environments, from simple
+directories to filesystem images, and can automate steps such as
+remounting /proc, /dev, and /tmp, setting up the chroots password
+and group files, etc.
+ To get started, see schroot.conf(5) and schroot-setup(5).
+ This package will link against Linux-PAM if it is present.
