RE: newbie need help to configure svn

we were facing the same situation when we migrated to SVN last fall, but we ended up with one repository for all our 100+ projects since the recommendation from SVN manual is to have common projects stored within the same repos for easier admin amon other things. Now that time goes by we see the revision number increasing rapidly, today 18000+ and still we have the big conversions to come. (And we convert our existing SCM projects with all revision info for each file so there are quite a number of revisions to come!)

We are therefor looking at splitting this repos into smaller repos with chunks of projects so that we dont get one large multi-gig multi-million revision repos, but we are not quite confident about the way to og yet. A problem with many projects is the duplication of hook scripts, but that can be solved by using symbolic links in Linux as we have tried out.
