Maybe you can help with an issue we're having -- is there anyway to
merge repositories? We already have stuff in the svn repository that
we'd like to keep, as well as adding the Webware repository -- right now
it looks like we'll have to create a new repository for Webware, then
copy over all the stuff in the current repository (losing history), or
maybe dump the current repository and put it in a sub-tree... hmm; I
guess that would work in this case.
I did encounter a problem when I wanted to move WSGIKit over to the
Webware repository, since I wanted to move one subtree into another
subtree -- I ended up just copying everything over losing history for that.
