Off-Topic: Until I have run all the cleanups required to upgrade to an SVN 1.7 client everywhere,
it is burdensome to selectively check-out and update pieces of a repo.  I'll do it then (since
there is finer-grained control once I do the upgrade.)

On-Topic: I am liking this.  It is still the case that an entire repo checkout should work.
 And, for a multi-component project, I favor what is done to tidy the organization into meaningful

 - Dennis

Subject: Re: svn commit: r1200892 - /incubator/jena/README

Yeah! Thanks.

A proposal for a small addition to this README file:

The Experimental/ directory contains prototypes which might or might not become 
supported Jena modules/contributions.
The Import/ directory contains the Jena CVS and SVN imports from SourceForge, 
it's here just for historical/archival reasons but we do not expect you to look 
at it.
The Scratch/ directory is our little|small|personal playground on the Apache SVN 
repository, this stuff might or might not made it into Jena code base. A sort of 
micro Apache Labs ( for tiny things related to Apache 
Jena. Some of us use also GitHub for this.
Last but not least, the site/ directory contains the sources for the Apache Jena 
website and... yes! You can check it out and submit patches for it. Patches on 
documentation are as welcome as patches for code.

Feel free to change/improve as you wish.

The aim is to clearly tell people:

  - do not waste your time on Import/
  - you can submit patches for site/ and they are welcome!
  - if you are curious and not afraid to experiment, feel free to look at
    Experimental/ and/or Scratch/ but, please, be aware that this is
    "unsupported" and "unreleased" stuff until it's moved elsewhere.
