Subject master_l10n (was:
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2011 19:22:36 GMT
I'm working on fetching all the Hg repositories and wanted to come
back to the l10n stuff. We need to include that in our migration
(correct me, if I'm wrong).

Gotcha. Okay. I'll expand the script to working against this master,
and then fetch cws_l10n repositories against that.

Okay. I'll comment them out in cws-list.txt as I find them.

I'm going to suggest we do this:

3. as sibling to trunk and our other high-level directories:


That has the advantage of avoiding the l10n data when working on
trunk. When we copy trunk to a new branch, we can copy l10n into that
copied trunk, or as a sibling branch. I think that will depend on how
we'd like to manufacture a release, and I don't have the data for

PMCs generally get one directory in the ASF repository:
repos/asf/PMC/.... The above structure maintains that, and keeps l10n
data out of trunk.

Another option would be to use option (1), and if people don't want
the data, then they can use "shallow" working copies[1]. This requires
a bit more activity from the developer, and I think it would be
simpler to follow the *typical* case of not wanting the l10n data by
omitting it from trunk.
