what's current? (in the context of svn, it's obvious that current is
the current upstream version)
I've set this up as a vendor branch as described in the SVN book:
Reading it again, I see that their description is for only part of the
main code, not all of it, though.
I see you have only one upstream version. Any experience with
importing and/or merging new upstream sources?
No; there hasn't been an upstream release since I imported this into
Subversion, and I haven't tested it with previous versions. The
procedure described in the book looks straightforward: use svn_load_dirs
to update a checked-out current, or do it manually, tag it by copying
vendor/current to vendor/<upstream>, and use svn merge to copy the new
changes from vendor/<upstream> into trunk.
