Branch documentation

I'm trying to find out how one can put branch documentation in the
branch itself. By branch documentation I mean information such as
        - owner
        - description
        - parent branch
        - codeline policy
Such information has to be versioned within the branch, but is owned by
the branch and does not make sense in other branches. In particular, it
must not be merged back to the trunk, which has its own documentation.

How does one manage such information with Subversion ? I'd imagine such
custom information to be typically stored in one or several files, that
would have to be checked out in working copies and commited back to the
branch (so svn:ignore won't do), but ignored when merging (and maybe
also when creating branches / tags).

I'm currently using Subversion 1.2.3 and am rather new to SCM an
Subversion in particular. In my company we've got a few small products
developed in java, in a very strict component-oriented way (dependency
control). Our java developments are expected to grow and we can't go on
developing without a decent versioning tool... I've gone trough the svn
book, suclipse help, this user mailing list archives, but haven't found
an answer to the issue above.

Thanks for your help and advice.
