Config.codeBase will be /repository/webwerkstatt/kernel instead of /repository/webwerkstatt. Paths relative to Config.codeBase therefore should be fixed (typically with another '../' at the beginning).

By centralizing these files in Webwerkstatt (which is effectively our upstream repository right now), it will be possible to check them out as a Subversion submodule that can be kept in sync with other version control systems.
