RE: [eclipselink-dev] SVN top level repository changes.

Sounds okay to me.  I would prefer to have the work performed over the weekend as it will have less impact on current development.

Will open transactions have to be manually merged?

Hi Tom,

  It shouldn't change the URL.  The repository( at the filesystem level 
) will be moving from /svnroot/rt to 
/svnroot/rt/org.eclipse.persistence, everything else should remain the same.
