i am all for it, but: does sourceforge already implement some kind of
acl for svn? or can we live without acl's?

for externals i would suggest to split branches on each external
separately, (e.g. /externals/zexy/trunk instead of /trunk/externals/zexy
or /externals/trunk/zexy)
(the repository basically consists of a lot of small packages which all
have their independent release cycles)

for pd/pd-devel i suggest 2 main branches in parallel (e.g. /pd/trunk/
and /pd/devel/ instead of /pd/branches/devel

i would volunteer too, however i don't see any advantage in having 2 (or
more) persons involved in the migration. (probably when they are at the
same terminal, like with XP, then there might be a benefit)
