It's nothing but a mirror of the bkCVS repo in SVN. It serves the same
purpose as bkCVS, which is to allow people who don't want to use bk, or
can't use bk, to track linux 2.4 and linux 2.5 development, between
major releases.

Script is run hourly, 30 minutes offset from the bkcvs scripts. Tags are
tracked. You'd have to understand BK's model to understand why branches
are not there.
