RE: Initial Layout Questions

With Subversion, as with CVS before it, the common practice is to rename
your original source directory (<directory>.ORIG for example), checkout from
the repository, and compare the two to make sure all files were checked out
successfully. This is normally only necessary when one wishes to import from
a specific directory and have that directory be the working copy. If all
files were checked out successfully, the original directory is now cruft and
can be deleted.
