Just my two cents, but I think that "release" should only refer to builds that have been shipped
to the end-user and are in usage.

 Why not have a top-level directory:


 And if it's automated to build every night, it could have:

 /build/9 November 2012/...
 /build/8 November 2012/...
 /build/7 November 2012/...

 And dump all build artifacts in there.

Subject: SVN Usage Questions

 I am looking for some guidance on where to store build artifacts in SVN. Our projects are
organized in the typical fashion:
 Our official build server is a QNX system, a Unix-like OS. 
 Our proposed process calls for the build engineer to copy the code from the SVN repo to the
build server. When a build has been executed, where should we copy the artifacts (the executables)
back to? Is the /release directory appropriate or is the another “standard” way to store
the artifacts?
 How are other people handling this?
 Secondly, if we check-in to the /release folder, what mechanism is there to readily identify
the artifacts. Do we create a /release/rel_1 type structure or is there some labeling convention
available in SVN? Unless I am I missing something very obvious, I don’t see a way to apply
labels in SVN.
 Please advise.
