I'm +20 on this. I've complained about sourceforge CVS for a long
time, mainly because of the lag which in the past could be days, but
also because of the lack of proper directory management. Every time
we wanted to reorganize the directories we would lose history.
If you (or anyone else) want to have a go at migration, please do. It

I propose the following structure, which we could implement as the first
commits of the subversion repository once the CVS data is installed.
matplotlib/ (top level)
branches/ (empty for now)
(and so on)
This will make life easier down the track when we want to make branches
and will allow checkouts of just the trunk with:
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/matplotlib/trunk matplotlib
I just downloaded inkscape from SF via svn, and all apparently went
