hehe.  I can see your point.  While the actual branch name is not
important, the designation as a "mob" branch is actually a term of
art.  The term is a reference to an essay [1], and it's a term I've
seen used by several different projects.  Admittedly, it's probably
not widely used outside of communities that use a distributed SCM, so
I should have explained the term.  Nevertheless, I don't think we have
any say over the definition of that term.

It's certainly not a derogatory term, so I expect it will eventually
lose any intial negative connotations people have with it.

As to the point at hand, it doesn't seem like anyone is too interested
in figuring out how to implement this with svn, so it's probably
easiest just to give you access to the directory.  So, send Derek or
Josh your public key, and see what happens.  :)
