Probably there's a document somewhere, but do we have some official
advice for how to branch when we are using svn, and will the old cvs
branches be morphed into that system? As far as I understand, svn
branches of modules are copies of that module in any old directory that
you like (with svn presumably maintaining some link between the copies).

I guess at the least we need to create the branches/gnome-2-*/ or
similar directories early, and tell people to put their branches in
