RE: Multiple projects in one repository!

I know that Subversion doesn't care about the directory structure :)
What I meant was that it whould be nice if it was possible to have a
separate revision for each project. Right now you have to have one
repository for each project. Like i wrote in my first mail about this
when you're building products that are built of multible shared libs
it's not fun to have one repository for each library.

Application 1 uses library 1, 2 and 3
Application 2 uses libraray 1, 3 and 4
Application 3 uses libraray 1

It whould be nice if each library could be a separate "module" in the
repository, with it's own revision number, that is only bumped when
checking in that module.

You can lay your repository out however you want. Subversion doesn't
care.

Because subversion's own repository has only one project, we chose the
latter layout. But if you want to put multiple projects in your
repository, then the former layout makes more sense, certainly.

Subversion doesn't enforce any structure at all. You can lay out your
directories however you want. Or rearrange them later if you change
your mind.
