Ah, well, I think most of the developers will catch on pretty quick ;)
We can put up some README.MOVED files in various places perhaps?

Maybe someone who is familiar with svn can give a basic OK to this
layout.  Greg?

There is a gnustep gna project already.  I'm sure Alex Perez (who has it
registered) wouldn't mind setting you up as administrator and some other
people that could give out the commit access although we'll have to ask

Alex set the gnustep project up on gna due to Savannah not being able to
set up a -ui and -packagers mailing list when they were needed some time

I'm not sure what the best approach would be here.  Subversion has
repository-wide revision numbers, so it is difficult to check that
(although the original CVS revision number will be stored in the
metadata for the file).  I can run a couple diffs on various different
dates through the history (including the latest) svn vs. cvs?
