debian-edu repository moved to subversion

I've completed the first stage of switching the debian-edu repository to
subversion. The second stage will have to wait until this weekend (I've got
a flight to catch). With the first stage done you can switch to using
subversion already, commit emails are working, but some other scripts are
not yet updated.

If you have an alioth account, check out the new repository as follows:

svn co svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/debian-edu/trunk debian-edu

If you lack an alioth account or need an anonymous checkout, use this:

svn co svn://svn.debian.org/svn/debian-edu/trunk debian-edu

The repository is also browsable over the web at

Once you have the repository checked out, most commands will be the same
using subversion as they were with cvs, just replace the "cvs" with
"svn". So "svn update", "svn commit", "svn rm <file>", "svn add <file>".
More interesting things are possibile with subversion, and it's well
documented in the subversion book at <http://svnbook.red-bean.com/>.

The cvs repository is still availale, but in read-only mode. If you have
pending commits, this should let you do a cvs diff and apply the patch
to subversion.

Still TODO in this repository conversion:

 - Switch builder's debian-edu checkout from the cvs repository to svn. (pere)
 - Update CD build scripts and other scripts that use cvs. (joeyh/finnarne)
 - Update documentation that refers to cvs. (anyone)
 - Set up web site update and cron job update hooks when the appropriate
   subdirectories are updated. (joeyh)
 - Make sure that all the packages build ok from subversion. (anyone)
 - Possibly register a svn.skolelinux.org domain and point it at
   svn.debian.org so we can easily switch it to a different host if
   needed. (?)
