The XML project dropped the xml- (http://xml.apache.org/svn.html#Web 
+Access+to+the+Repository) and I think that we should do likewise.

After the conversion, we'd have something like:


After the repo is established, then I'd suggest establishing a  
logging/sandbox and find a new home for logging-log4j/contribs (which  
could be the sandbox)

In our current CVS setup, each sub-project (chainsaw, log4cxx, log4j,  
log4net, site) have their own CVS module with distinct lists of  
committer and change notifications.  The quote from the SVN book  
suggests that if we use a single repo for Logging Services may  
require or encourage that we unify the committer lists and change  
notification.  That is have Logging Services committers who have  
write access to all products (instead of log4j committers, log4net  
committers, etc) and have all change notifications go to  
svn@logging.apache.org (instead of going to log4j- 
dev@logging.apache.org, log4cxx-dev@logging.apache.org, etc).  Is  
that a proper understanding of the consequences of having a single  
repo for LS?  I think that might be a good change, but we need to  
discuss the implications.
