[arch-dev-public] how to call svn based devtools within a i686 (core) chroot

i keep several chroots alive: core, core/testing, extra, extra/testing.
and that twice for each architecture. calling devtools archrelease
foo-$CARCH works well for extra and extra/testing also in i686
(linux32) chroots.

but how to deal with core chroots?

for x86_64 i can run archrelease from outside the chroot. but this
won't work for i686. so far i had manually tagged and scp'ed the pkg.
how to to this now? moving all subversion related dependencies to
core/devel could solve it that are not only a few packages, so it
would blow up core a bit too much i think. any idea?

btw: how's other devs experience with mkarchroot? is the creation
trivial for x86_64 and linux32 i686 chroots? how do you keep the chroot
empty or do create each time a new one? is there any advantage beside
disc space over permanent chroots?
