It really depends on you. If your documentation is worked on as a single unit, I would say make testproject/doc folder. However, if your doc is totally separate for client and server then put a doc folder in trunk of each of those.

But, if testproject is all one project it might make more sense to have:

$REPO/testproject/trunk/server
$REPO/testproject/trunk/client
$REPO/testproject/trunk/doc
$REPO/testproject/tags
$REPO/testproject/branches

Of course YMMV and having trunk/tags/branches for each client/server and documentation may just be what you need. It really depends on the granularity of your project, the tools and versioning. A general guideline I follow is if everything is versioned and/or deployed as a unit then put it together. The way you have it would imply to me that while client and server are all part of your testproject "application" they are developed and versioned separately.
