Hey Dave

What are you trying to achieve?

poudriere already runs all builds in jails and if you’re using zfs, stores all data in separate zroot/poudriere datasets. Hard to get much cleaner than it already is - aside from a handful of config files and any ccache data it’s as jailed as you can expect.

I bookmarked this a while back, it probably is still sufficient. The original site appears to have bitrotted.
