0. Initial proposal:
1. Refined proposal:
old filename new filename variable
patches/patch-* -> patch-* PATCHDIR
files/md5 -> dist-sum MD5_FILE
files/patch-sum -> patch-sum PATCH_SUM_FILE
pkg/PLIST* -> plist* PLIST_SRC
pkg/COMMENT -> comment COMMENT
pkg/DESCR -> descr DESCR_SRC
pkg/INSTALL -> install INSTALL_FILE
pkg/DEINSTALL -> deinstall DEINSTALL_FILE
pkg/MESSAGE -> message MESSAGE_FILE
scripts/* -> * SCRIPTDIR
files/* -> *  -
 Where possible - there are a number of pkgs that have a files/Makefile
or similar. Must be renamed to prevent clash.
The idea is to drop what's not needed of the current repository, and
start a new one. We have two ways here:
a) Checkout, reorg, import our ~1800 pkgs.
This approach will also drop all revision history.
b) Copy over all the ,v files (that are not in Attic) into a new
repository, then reorg there. This approach will keep revision
history of the files that are not deleted, but still speed up
"cvs update" later as there are no Attic directories that are
first created and then removed again immediately.
My preference here is b).
