I think I will need the help of Savannah administrators, due to we
have access to read the raw repository but not to modify it. I will take
into contact with them at the #savannah channel (Beuc or others) tonight.

It will be a lot easier for me if I just delete the odd directories.
Anyway I will try to keep the history too, but I think I will not manage to
keep it due to I have done changes on the new files. It would be a lot of
work set it in sync. You know.

Let me know any disagreement,
