I have two versions of a piece of software I build for each distribution I 
build on.  Currently I do this by having two different VMs with 
git-buildpackage and pbuilder, and then create an image for each dist 
(buster, bullseye, bionic, and focal) on each of them, but with a different 

I'd like to get this down to a single server, but I can't find a way to get 
pbuilder to either:

a) Use different OTHERMIRRORS at build time with the existing dist image

b) Have multiple images of a given dist with different OTHERMIRROR values

Anyone have any hints? :)
