Hang on - the Authorized Contributor Questionnaire is conceptual in how 
we want to manage any exposure issues.  The fact that it doesn't 
absolutely reflect the layout in SVN is irrelevant.

I'd prefer making any changes to that document until our overall layout 
settles down to avoid having to do continual changes.

What problem are you really trying to solve?  IOW, has this stopped 
anyone from contributing?

If so, please let us know, because there is no need to match the 
structure when a contribution is made.  Good code is good code, and as 
the receiver of the "gift", we're happy to do the work to put into our 
project layout, with gratitude.

We haven't resolved with 100% certainty, but I think we're in agreement 
that in module is preferred.  But so far, there has been no compelling 
reason to stop what we're doing and move it.

We'll figure it out.  Right now we have a few good exmaples, and we 
should take a hard look and decide.

No - we all work together.  Committers aren't individual contractors - 
we're collaborating to build something we all agree with...

Contributors, on the other hand, are free to provide to us in any way 
they want.  We'd be happier if it was more like our structure(s) than 
different, but we beggars can't be choosers... :)
