You still get all the empty directories in the initial checkout of the

I would personally prefer to actually re-import the whole CVS tree (that 
would effectively clear
all the versions and tags) and keep the old repository in an archive to 
let people search for older
If this does not seem to create consensus, I'll try to see what can be 
done to prune manually
the current repository of the oldest directories (some of them have not 
been used for more than
2 years...).
As far as I understand the different needs, we just need to be sure that 
it's still possible to retrieve
all the versions up to 1.2b1.
