[Mono-dev] SVN Repository layout - is this explained anywhere

Apologies to those who have an intimate understanding of the SVN repository.

I have been considering helping with developing mono, but the main
inhibition at this stage is to know where to find things, becuase the SVN
repository has sooo many folders. I don't know where to start to find what.

So I was wondering if anyone can point me to a document/page that explains
the purpose of each directory under /trunk, that would basically give me an
orientation to the repository layout. Or if such a document doesn't exist,
could someone consider making such a document? - I don't expect a huge
thing, possibly just a few short words to explain the purpose of each
directory, e.g. what is the purpose of "DemoLib", what is the purpose of
"Deveel.Pim", what is the purpose of "Dumbarton", etc.

On a related issue, is there somewhere an "Orientation to helping develop
mono" page, which gives a brief explanation of how to get involved, because
I couldn't find that either. All I could find was
http://mono-project.com/Mono_Contribution_HOWTO which doesn't really explain
such things as what part(s) of the repository should be checked out to do
basic things, or a policy on where things are to be checked-in, etc.
