 Subject: [PROPOSAL][Git] Tidy up SVN repos for components using Git
Following on from the discussion, here is what I propose.

***The intention is to ensure that the SVN repo is not used by
accident, but still allow users to find the Git repo if they only have
the SVN URL.***

[Note: as part of the move to Git, the SVN repo is made read-only by Infra]

Once the Git repo is up and running:

1) Add a README file to the top level of the SVN tree for the component

For example:

2) Move the rest of the contents (branches,tags,trunk, etc) to (or some such name)
[This tree would be read-only except as needed to move stuff into it]

3) Sometime later, the old SVN contents could be dropped if required.
However, that won't actually save much (if any) space in the SVN repo,
so I don't see the point.
It may still be useful to be able to navigate SVN.

Unless there are any corrections/objections to this I propose to do
this in a few days time.
