1. In what repository will the artifacts go?

IIRC, there is some additional repository. I think it wouldn't be good
to have them in /repos/asf/

2. You will have to upload Javadocs.

With svn 1.6 I used an Ant snippet similar to the following to remove all files,
but leave the directories structure intact:
		<delete defaultexcludes="false">
			<fileset dir="${path}">
				<exclude name="**/.svn" />
				<include name="**/*" />

After that I would copy the new files over the old structure and commit them.

With svn 1.7 that would be easier, because It does not have .svn subdirectories.

I am already using svn 1.7 (TortoiseSVN nightly builds) for two weeks
and am quite happy with them. There is a thread at dev@subversion that
the first alpha/beta for 1.7.0 is tentatively scheduled on June 1.

3. Will we migrate our website to the new CMS?

Have you thought whether you proposal will facilitate such migration,
or impede it?
