Documentation: create new scheduler/ subdirectory
J. Bruce Fields [Thu, 7 Feb 2008 08:13:37 +0000 (00:13 -0800)]
The top-level Documentation/ directory is unmanageably large, so we
should take any obvious opportunities to move stuff into subdirectories.
These sched-*.txt files seem an obvious easy case.
