[Python-Dev] Moving the ctypes repository to python.org

Now that ctypes is no longer an externally maintained module, imo the 
repository should be moved from SF cvs to python.org svn.

The current layout is different than the main python trunk, and it 
should be preserved so that I can still do standalone releases.

I think the best would be to import it into an url like


Is it possible to take the CVS repository files (they can be accessed 
with rsync), and import that, preserving the whole history, into SVN?

I would be responsible to merge changes from the sandbox to the Python 
trunk and vice versa.  On the other hand, it may be possible to use the 
svn:external facility to have Modules/_ctypes and Lib/ctypes use certain 
directories in the sandbox tree (although I do not know how good this 
works in reality).
