Agreed! +1

My comments bellow.

Yes, but misc/core_rules.txt, because it tells a lot more than just CVS

I think the idea of this file was initially to provide people that check
out from CVS a quick guide on what needs to be done before starting
(links, db-update etc). So this made no sense if bundled with the
"releases". But as the text now is more generic, it might be bundled.

In "CoreDocs" you mean.

Maybe add a "(previous "HEAD" from CVS)". I would also precise the "most
recent stuff" a bit more. E.g:

    trunk/ (previous "HEAD" from CVS) is where the new release is developed

    tags/* is the snapshot of the state made when each new version is

    branches/* is used for developing single branches. Each branch
correspond to the development of a major TYPO3 version (3.8, 4.0, 4.1,
...) so that bugfixes can be applied to older versions. Minor releases
for older branches are possible (e.g. 4.0.2).

The "branches" is missing in the path. Maybe better:

  For the trunk:

   svn checkout https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/typo3/TYPO3core/trunk/

  For a branch:

   svn checkout
    (replace ###BRANCH### e.g. with TYPO3_4-0 for the 4.0 branch)

Don't forget to change the reference to this filename if you change
