[arch-dev-public] archrelease: svnmerge

Hi all,

while having a little review of our devtools I noticed the we use svnmerge in 
archrelease to merge changes from trunk into the repo dir. This is very 
expensive and sometimes fails for more or less known reasons.

So, I wonder why we don't just do something like this:

	svn rm repos/extra-i686
	svn cp trunk repos/extra-i686

I did not check if this would requrie a commit after the rm or if we could do 
it in one run. But it should be a lot faster and safer though.
