Source code repository migrated from CVS to SVN

Source code of the project was migrated from CVS to SVN. The full commit history is preserved. It was not possible to convert CVS Branches and Tags, though that may not be of much importance.

The SVN repository has standard structure with trunk, branches, and tags. Most of the time you want to check out only trunk or one of its subdirectories. As URL of the repository use:
