as discussed over the last year we finally cleaned up the subversion
repository structure of the coreboot repository.

The reasons for this change are:
- checking out all required utilities with coreboot is easier
- No more svn externals, as they break https checkouts
- branching and merging to/from other repositories will be a lot easier.
- our tree structure more similar to that of other projects

The tree now roughly looks like this:

+-+ branches
| +-- coreboot-v1
| +-- coreboot-v2-newbuild
+-- tags
+-+ trunk
  +-- documentation
  +-- Makefile
  +-- NEWS
  +-- payloads
  +-- README
  +-- src
  +-- targets
  +-+ util
    +-- ...

So please update your repositories... you can migrate your old
repositories like this:

$ cd coreboot-v2
# make sure all your new files are added with svn add
$ svn diff > ../migration.diff
$ cd ..
$ svn co svn://coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk coreboot
$ cd coreboot
$ patch -p0 < ../migration.diff

That's it. The old repository (svn://coreboot.org/repos/) will stay
around for another while so all of you have enough time to switch.
It will, however, be read-only.

BTW: Those of you behind firewalls can now check out coreboot with a
single line again:
$ svn co https://svn.coreboot.org/coreboot/trunk  coreboot

The wiki, build scripts, and other config files were updated to make
this as smooth as possible. If you are experiencing trouble despite
this, please let me know.
