Great. I have added the pointer files now, you can close it off again now.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-9471
>             Project: Infrastructure
>          Issue Type: Task

> The Qpid project would like to have some pointer files (patches to follow) added to some
read-only sections of our Subversion repo, directing users to the replacement Git repositories.
> We migrated some of our code from Subversion to Git last year, and as part of the process
the old contents were marked read-only but remain in place. Some folks have been caught out
by continuing to use the old stale locations, as although we updated our website with the
new locations (and all the commits@ traffic mentions the new locations etc) it isnt particularly
clear from the old contents themselves that they are no longer in use, other than by realising
the last commits were a while ago.
> I checked in with infrastructure@ about our options back in March and we subsequently
had a discussion on the Qpid lists [1] to decide what we wanted to do. The outcome was to
add some pointer files to try and alert people of the change and give the new locations. Mark
Thomas suggested that if we went for a simple option such as this we should just ask Infra
to make the change rather than attempt it ourselves (I had noticed that as Chair I might have
rights to change the authorization levels), hence this JIRA.
> Thanks,
> Robbie
