A repository that big, I haven't tried. Dealing with good code check-in
procedures, though, is straightforward, You need to set sensible, working
policies on what a branch is, what a tag is, and who can put things in
trunk, with the particular procedures for merging to and from trunk
well-defined.

Releases should always be done with tags: they're easy to make, and can
easily include particular tags for other software components with
svn:externals.
