Type 'svn help mv' to figure out what to do.

By the way, I placed packaging for contrib/non-free stuff in at packages/trunk 
and nobody has said anything. I suppose it's ok since it generally is only 
the debian/ directory that's in there, which should be licensed under a DFSG 
compatible license anyway.

As for the tarballs, yes the wiki doesn't state another place to store 
non-free package tarballs. Anyone care to mention why there's a non-free 
section in the SVN but not for the tarballs?
