OffTopic?: Typical Directory Setup

From: Brian Beaudet <bbeaudet_at_efficiencylab.com>

I'm interested in how other's setup their project directories (other
than the trunk/branch/tags sections). In particular, I'll be using
Subversion for version control, Nant for automatic build tests and Nunit
for unit testing and build verification testing. I'm becoming with all
three parts separately but pretty soon I'll have to get them working
together so my time can be better spent, you know, making money.


Here's my question, let's consider a project in a repository (that
contains other projects as well) and under this project is the typical
trunk/ and branches/ and tag/ sections. What's the best way to setup
the files under trunk/ when you'll need to include documentation,
original files from the client, testing artifacts, source code, build
scripts, install files, datastore for holding database files, etc. We
currently pile all of this stuff under a project and sort through it as
necessary. Needless to say, our version control sucks right now.
That's why I'm looking Subversion.


Thanks for the input. What I've receive on my other thread regarding
repository layout was fantastic so I'm hoping this thread generates as
much response form you knowledgeable folk out there. I'd much rather
rely on your experience at this point then have to reconfigure the
project's layout smack in the middle after realizing things would work
out better if such and such directory were two levels up in it's own
section, etc.
