How should we organize svn?

We can have one trunk/branch/tag and under it a bunch of "projects".
We can have multiple top-level things, each having (optionally) 
trunk/branch/tag and under those a bunch of projects.

I say optionally, because I see projects that have "sandbox" as one of 
the top-level things, and they don't have trunk/branch/tags - I guess 
because they didn't set that up.  It's probably close to 0 cost - so 
maybe we should always set that up in our organization?

Some things in svn:  Code for Java framework, documentation (big book), 
website, sandbox, (eventually) code for C++ framework etc.

Release mechanisms can have as a part the creation of a "tag" for the 
release.  So things we release together should be under one 
trunk/branch/tag set.

We could put the uima C++ in together with the uima Java  - this might 
allow synchronized releasing better.  Or we could declare these to be 
more "decoupled" and independently release-able.

I'm leaning toward this organization:

Top level nodes under svn ... incubator/uima

  uimaj  (for java framework)
  uimac (for c++ framework)
  docs   (for general books, tutorials, etc. - docs specific to uimaj or 
uimac would go there)

Under each of these except site would be trunk/branches/tags.  Site is 
always showing just the lastest, so I'm not sure why we would want to 
have branches and tags.

Other opinions?
