RE: how to check-in to a deleted repository?

yeah, I knew someone would say that. what I really wanted was some sort of
"don't delete this, but just remove it from the head". we use trac and a lot
of people use its source browser to look at the source code. having these
components visible is a little confusing for some.

thanks ryan, as well as lieven and chris. I copied everything into a
top-level "milestones" directory on the head, and I'll just work in here
from now on. this will be visible, but hopefully the milestones name will
make it clear that what's in there is some historical archive.

anyway, thanks.
