Okay, first have a look at the directory structure then the public 
repository can be created.

I think it's best to use a seperate repository from 'www' (how about 
'website'?) since we'll have too much moving of files and directories 
once we convert. Once we convert we drop 'www' and use 'website' 
instead. I hope it's as simple as I sound... ;)

Alternatively, there are no name collisions so we /could/ drop the new 
site on top of the old. However that's a maintainance nightmare and I 
prefer people go to the customized 404.html rather then an outdated page.
