With jhbuild, when we enter into a jhbuild shell we are still in the

With BuildStream, will it be similar?


So, this is a little bit fiddly compared to working entirely within one
build sandbox, only because you really need to exit and enter a sandbox
environment when you want to try something out, otherwise it's snappy
(and maybe a convenience command to say "build + shell" in one go could
reduce a bit of typing).

On the bright side, you never ever trust your host environment for
anything, except for a display server and session bus in the case that
you use `bst shell` to run things.

OK, thanks for your detailed explanation.
