    3 Our server map is now in svn. We have both a [browser:trunk/admin/servers-available directory listing] and a [browser:trunk/admin/diagrams series of diagrams].
    4 
    5 Each server is represented by a directory. Inside each directory are both files and sub-directories denoting properties of that server.
    6 
    7 In addition, in [browser:trunk/admin/tags the admin/tags] directory, we have further classified servers by tags.
    8 
    9 In the [browser:trunk/admin/scripts scripts] directory are a number of scripts that make use of the server database.
    10 
    11 In the [browser:trunk/admin/directives directives] directory are some automated tasks that can be run with the scripts/execute-directive script.

    13 == Checking out the repository ==
    14 
    15 You can check out the entire repository with:
    16 
    17 {{{
    18 svn co https://svn.mayfirst.org/mfpl/trunk/admin
    19 }}}
    20 
    21 Or, if you have write access:
    22 
    23 {{{
    24 svn co svn+ssh://mfpl@svn.mayfirst.org/trunk/admin
    25 }}}
    26 
    27 == Adding a new server ==
    28 
    29 A [wiki:add_server_to_server_svn_db separate page describes how to add a new server].
    30 
    31 == Tags vs. Properties ==
    32 
    33 In general, we use properties to define characteristics of servers. When we need to define a characteristic that is either too complicated to be conveyed in a simple property name (like the standard tag which identifies the servers which directly host members web sites and email accounts) or temporary (like tagging servers for upgrades), we use tags.
