it's important that the ASF has a complete, unadulterated record of how 
each artifact has been created. so, directories and files which are no 
longer used should be removed using cvs (rather than being deleted from 
the server).

AIUI the infrastructure policy is that committers should not be 
directly modifying the structure of our repositories. (this extends 
even to deleting old lock files.) the right way is to ask 
infrastructure to perform the operation. there is now a system of 
rotating administrators so these requests should be serviced much more 
promptly than in the past.
