The ASF has only one SVN repo and we have a top level directory within 
that. We need to have all our code, including the history, under this 
directory as CVS will be turned off.

The directory strcuture may not be the nicest in the world but I spent 
some time thinking about it and it is the best I could come up with. 
There is a better, but longer, explanation on the svn page I put 
together for the TLP. Take a look at

Using externals wasn't something I had thought of but if offers a nice 
way to provide all the source for one version in a single chekcout. We 
now have tomcat/current/5.5.x that uses externals to link in all the 
various modules.
