A tiny request for the repository move

Author brane
Full name Branko Cibej
Date 2009-11-12 12:32:00 PST
Message Since we're going to move the repository ... and twiddle it to include
old CVS history ... and change version numbers ... I thought this would
be an auspicious time to make another tiny change. It's all about
setting a good example, and promoting best practices in the (new) community.

The request:

    s:trunk:branches/dev:g

Rationale:

    * Having all tags and branches at the same relative depth in the
      repository is a good for consistency, and also for relative
      references (e.g., if you import some code into repo/upstream, then
      your relative references to that code can all be ../../upstream
      from all tags and branches, and don't need to be changed when
      tagging a special trunk.
    * A "trunk" is not special; it's just another branch, the main
      development branch by convention, but no more than that.
    * It all looks more sexy and symmetric.

I volunteer to write the necessary magic scripts to tweak all paths,
mergeinfo, etc. in the dumpfile before we import it into the new repo.
Could make such moves a feature of svndumpfilter, most likely.
