One more thing is that each of the folders is it's own working copy
independent from the others, besides the symbolic links to some files
of the working copy of the trunk-folder. They are all somewhere in the
same repo, as trunk and tags or branches, but each folder on the
development server has been checked out independantly from the other
folders and the root folder of all of them is not a working copy at

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

Thorsten Schöning
