It already works pretty well out of the box.

To install it, as root:
urpmi iurt

Then, as user, do:
 --repository http://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/Mageia/distrib/
 --rebuild cauldron x86_64 foo.src.rpm

This will build (or rebuild) the base chroot automatically if needed.

You might just need a rule in a /etc/sudoers.d/iurt file to allow your
user to run /usr/sbin/iurt_root_command (without password)
