I'm not sure where to chime in, but I was just attempting to
check out one of the Jakarta Commons sub-projects.
Their directory structure is such that, if you want to checkout
all of commons, you cant simply checkout trunk/commons, because
you'll checkout every branch, ever.
It looks like this:
Might be easier to manage a specific library, but it's hard on
the non-commiter that want's to build from source control.
In any case, I hope you'll consider carefully, the project
structure when you move away from the tag based system in CVS.
