cowbuilder crossbuilds for raspbian

after reading waja's description on Crossbuilding Debian Packages With Sbuild (for Raspbian), I thought I'd share what I did for using cowbuilder for the same purpose.

I stumbled about these instructions for pbuilder on github recently which taught me about the nice qemu-debootstrap tool. as I didn't want a specific config file & I prefer cowbuilder over pbuilder, I "translated" the instructions to the following command:

cowbuilder --create --basepath /var/cache/pbuilder/armhf/raspbian-wheezy-base.cow \
--distribution wheezy --mirror \
--components "main contrib non-free rpi" --extrapackages eatmydata \
--architecture armhf \
--debootstrap qemu-debootstrap --debootstrapopts --variant=buildd \
--debootstrapopts --keyring=/usr/share/keyrings/raspbian-archive-keyring.gpg

(after installing the raspbian-archive-keyring before)
