devel/subversion and devel/git are meta packages. They only depends on others
regular packages. Having them in devel/ leads people to install them rather
than devel/subversion-base and devel/git-base if they only want basic
functionality. meta-pkgs/ is a better place for those two packages.
naively install devel/subversion and you will get all svn language binding and
apache web server where you only wanted to check out a repository.
mv devel/subversion meta-pkgs/;
mv devel/git meta-pkgs/
