We do have mgarepo and iurt, and I think e should aim to improves theses
tools. But there is no plan to have chroot for developpers in the short
term, as we lack servers ( and time ) for that. 

In the long term, yes, we will do something for that ( ie giving access
to build box ). For now, we plan to open the mirror soon now the first
part is complete, so people could at least install their own chroot/test
compute whatever.
