Migrating from CWD 2.1 (Balblair) to CWD 2.2 (Caperdonich)

Caperdonich is approaching and there are a few structural changes that are needed. CWD 2.1 will be retired two weeks after 2.2 is released so existing sites will not work.

We have setup an SVN repository and a Mantis account to track CWD progress.
