Package pseudo

Advanced tool for simulating superuser privileges

The pseudo utility offers a way to run commands in a virtualized "root"
environment, allowing ordinary users to run commands which give the illusion of
creating device nodes, changing file ownership, and otherwise doing things
necessary for creating distribution packages or filesystems.

Pseudo has a lot of similarities to fakeroot but is a new implementation that
improves on the problems seen using fakeroot. Pseudo is now extensively used by
Poky as a replacement to fakeroot but can also be used standalone in many other
use cases.
