It is a symlink to /home/repository/biosql because this is a shared  
project, but you need to be in the biosql group though to checkout  
with read+write permissions.

An email to the helpdesk will get this straightened out.

We'll have to think more about how we want to handle this in the  
future in terms of granting permissions to the schema for r/w.
