That seems reasonable enough.  I'm not really an infra person, but I am 
a Subversion person, so I'll try to give a few pointers from what I've

Correct, mod_authz_svn will allow you to give people access to just the 
sandbox if you so desire.

Putting it in a separate directory (like you have here) is pretty much 
the standard Subversion way of doing things.  The only real question IMO 
is if you want the trunk/tags/branches directories for the core lucene 
project to go in a top level directory under jakarta/lucene.  Another 
way of doing things is something like this:


This might make things simpler for the eventual move of lucene into a 
top level ASF project.  All you'd have to do is mv jakarta/lucene search 
and you'd be all set.  Note that this is also similar to how the httpd 
and apr projects are layed out, a single asf/foo directory with multiple 
subdirectories under it for the projects under that umbrella.
