OK, I understand your point.

Because it is not show the real repository structure...
For example...
Contribution policy:
"Division of Repository
=== skipped ===
=== skipped ==="

Real repository:
enhanced/classlib/branches/ - unspecified but with obvious meaning
enhanced/classlib/tag/ - unspecified but with obvious meaning
enhanced/classlib/trunk/ - unspecified but with obvious meaning
All the directories inside "trunk" are not specified but almost
obvious. And only inside "enhanced/classlib/trunk/modules/" we can
find module names which were mentioned in the policy.

But I believe that we need clear decision anyway... To put the native
sources inside the modules or not to put.

I think it will be very useful for developers (who plans to contribute
something to Harmony) to have up to date policy on repository
structure and building process. It will also help for users and fix
developers to understand where to find needed sources.

And my other point that now we got not much sources and it will be
rather easy to adjust them to the policy. When we will have more
modules with much more sources it will be much more hard.
