  +Title: SVN Repo reorganization
  +Author: Keven P. Fleming
  +Date: 2004/07/11
  +
  +	<p>The ALFS SVN repository has been completed reorganized. The ALFS sub-projects (nALFS, DTD, profiles and syntax documentation) are now located in their own portions of the repo tree, instead of being intermixed. This also means that the branches and tags for these sub-projects are isolated to their portion of the repository, making it easier to understand which branches/tags apply to which sub-projects. Finally, all existing branches/tags have been renamed to better reflect the actual version numbers they represent.</p>
  +	<p>All existing SVN checkouts (working copies) made from the ALFS repository will need to be either recreated or <code>switched</code> to new URLs. For details on how to do this, see the <a href="http://linuxfromscratch.org/pipermail/alfs-discuss/2004-July/005424.html">SVN reorg</a> messages posted to the alfs-discuss mailing list. </p>
