[Zope-CMF] Moving CMF into SVN

I have created a cvs2svn migration test sandbox for CMF on svn.zope.org:


This represents an import from the current state of the CVS  
repository. It is looking pretty good, except for one niggle: The  
"branch/tag/trunk"-folders don't represent the direct root for the  
project files - they all contain a CMF directory which is the root  
for the project files.

I found one cvs2svn FAQ (currently unavailable, server is down) that  
describes how to create a repository structure as known from  
svn.zope.org, where the "trunk", "branches" and "tags" directories  
are *inside* the main project directory. The "normal" way of  
operation for cvs2svn will create trunk/branches/tags directories at  
the very top of the repository and "share" them for all projects in  
the repository. However, that FAQ leads to the outcome described  
above, which still differs slightly from the other projects on  

Please take a look at the svn sandbox and give me your opinions. It  
seems that the history is being transferred correctly, just that one  
small layout problem remains.
