actually OOO340 should be sufficient, because it contains all changes 
from DEV300.
why would copying to ooo340 (what do you mean by that? merging in 
OOO340?) be required?

if you pull a CWS into a OOO340 clone you may have 2 heads (the OOO340 
head and the CWS head), but if the CWS is not rebased to the latest 
DEV300 milestone+masterfixes, you have the _exact_ same problem if you 
pull into a DEV300 clone.

and in any case, pulling all (OOO340 clone+CWS pull) repos into a single 
OOO340 repo should add +1 head per CWS, which could be (in principle) 
converted to a SVN branch.
