Still looking for some response to this request... Looking at other incubator projects, some are using "sandbox", some are using "branches", others don't seem to have an alternate folder for misc development branches. I would create the folders if I had the proper authority. Who does have the authority? And, when we find that person, what should we have them create?
We already have "site" and "trunk". I think to be consistent with svn practices, we should have a "branches" and "tags" folder at a minimum. If we want to keep "branches" pristine for real versions of OpenJPA, then we should also create a "sandbox" folder to house any sandbox development branches.

Hi, You've probably noticed that I attempted to create a branch for the OPENJPA-24 work (I've been busy with a conference and some of Abe's changes were starting to overlap..). But, when I attempted to create this branch in a "branches" subdirectory, I got an authentication error with creating the directory. As you probably noticed, I was allowed to create the OPENJPA-24 branch at the root level (same level as trunk), but I didn't think that was appropriate. (I deleted that one.) So, what's the scoop with sandbox branches? Should we be allowed to use these? I hope so, since this provides a nice way of sharing and collaborating on changes that are bigger than a breadbox. If we agree, could someone with enough authority create the branches folder so that we have a place to put them? Thanks! Kevin
