I think almost everything is eligible to move down a level into
/trunk/extensions or /trunk/parsers. And then there's several directories
probably be in the separate Wikimedia repo entirely (things like php, otrs,
Ideally trunk would only contain phase3, extensions, tools, parsers and
one or two more.
I really don't think it's worth the effort at all. We're ditching SVN
within the year anyway, which would be a point where we split
all these things into separate repos anyway.
