Here are the 2 options:

1) adding a top-level 'dev' directory directly beneath 'kepler' but 
above src, lib and all the other dirs, like this:

kepler/dev/src,lib,etc(everything except docs)

*however* - if my understanding is correct, this will necessitate 
changes to the ant build file(s) and changes to the project setup of 
everyone using eclipse, jbuilder or other IDE's.

2) Leave the kepler repository as is, and pull out the docs into a 
different repository (kepler-docs). No build/dev environment changes 
would be necessary

In summary, I don't feel strongly either way, *but* I am personally 
volunteering to carry out option (2) immediately, without any further 
humming and hawing and generally procrastinating, since it is easy and 
quick to do, and would solve our problems.

If the majority of people want option (1) instead, then can someone 
please step up to the plate and do it, before things get further out of
