Dear maintainer,

could you please make mmdebstrap compatible with grml-debootstrap,
pbuilder and cowbuilder?

These applications support setting a custom debootstrap but mmdebstrap
cannot yet serve as a drop-in replacement for debootstrap since its
command line interface is different.

Dunno if becoming a debootstrap drop-in replacement is one of your
goals. In case it is, just reporting the incomparability.

At the moment I am wrenching a custom wrapper in between which is not great.


That wrapper might also give clues what kind of incompatibilities were

Kind regards,
