FYI, there is no reason to check out /trunk/. You will get way too much
stuff. You should check out /trunk/mcs, /trunk/mono, etc.
There are a few scripts that would be nice to put for some quick error
checking. For example, I'd really like one that forbids new text files
that aren't svn:eol-style=native. In a similar vein, it'd be great to
have one that forbids users from adding \r\n lines to a file that is
completely \n. It's more a matter of us having time to QA and in some
cases write the scripts.
