[Python-Dev] svn.python.org confusion

Not surprisingly, people are still attempting to browse and/or checkout 
Python source from svn.python.org.  They could be following out-of-date 
instructions from somewhere or might be expecting the svn repos are 
mirroring the hg ones.  This causes wasted time and frustration for 
users and for us following up on issues.

Could some text be added to the svn browser pages to at least indicate 
that the repo is no longer being updated with a link to the 
hg.python.org browser?   I'm not sure what to do about the repos 
themselves if people attempt to do an svn co.  Perhaps that should just 
be disabled totally for python?
