But then, doesn't this mean that any change in any of the project changes
the version for the whole repository ?

So if I have four projects inside one repository (and in our case, it is
more like 60 !), no project is made to one project for a year, while the
other projects are very active, the one project is now a revision N + 40,
while no change whatsoever has been made to it ?

Or am I confused ?
