Is the expected filesystem layout documented somewhere online (_external_
to the source code) ?

The reason I stress external to the code is that some of us do not track
git developments.  (Except via the ctrl-d method in our mail readers.)

Alternatively, when changes occur to the repostory format, please can
they be marked with some obvious subject so that folk know when things
are going to break?
