It will be done by reviewing every srpm, drop anything mdv
"owned"/trademarked, and then committed to svn. This is to get a clean
svn to start from.

maintainers will be able to import stuff into svn themselves.
More to follow soon regarding packagers / cleanup work.
We will notify users when we open up the svn so people can start
reviewing/cleaning packages and commit it to svn
Then a new notification will be sent when we consider BS fully open.

This will be refined for packaging teams/maintainer groups...
