bug_15947 in my gitian-builder repo ( has the backport of the fix. Old containers need to get replaced and we might need to change things on our LXC machine, too, in order to avoid the root requirement.

I added another backport on top of it ( which makes things easier and backwards compatible. I did not squash the commits to keep the history available.

Ok, this looked OK to me, though I wonder how many 14.04 users will actually know to use the env var.

I merged it and tagged a new gitian-builder tag, and updated our versions files to use it for stable and alpha.

I'll update our HACKING document adding this bit I'll look into updating our README as well. That should be enough.

Oh, and #12431 is a duplicate of this bug I guess.
