I'm with you on this one. I use vendor branches extensively at work,
and it's a very good way of managing code in this kind of project. 

One of my colleagues has written a tool for automating this kind of
task that is superiour to svn_load_dirs.pl (which only does half the
job). Here's a mailing list post with source code:

This needs to be discussed. I don't know what's best practice for
large installations of roundup. I'm running the demo tracker
(http://efod.se/python-tracker) and the meta tracker
(http://efod.se/ptt) via mod_python.

I guess Richard and/or the roundup-users list might have something to
say here.
