Okay, I have to admit.  I'm a bit confused.  Our current repository,
'www', looks like this.

Are you suggesting that under 'www' we have the structure located at ?

I'm sure I need to understand this better, but the suggestions made in
the documentation of Subversion seem to indicate a structure like this:

Also, in the matter of twiki, when a webpage gets edited on the site,
would we also have to then automate a subversion update?

In reference to
