FAQ about global revisions

Quoting the contents of the Subversion FAQ:

> 17. Why does the entire repository share the same revision number? I
> want each of my projects to have their own revision numbers.

Which is what I need to know, but the answer is missing. Can you please
tell me?

If I've got it right, then I'm supposed to put different branches and
major versions in different directories in the same repository. If that
means that they'll have the same revision number, I can't count on the
revision number to know when it's time to rebuild a branch? Nor can I
correlate bug reports by their revision numbers even if the source is

I guess you have some suggestions on how to do this "the Subversion Way"?

If the revision number really is repository wide then I'd like to use
several repositories instead. I tried, but I couldn't get "svn copy URL1
URL2" to work between repositories. Is this a bug or is it the way it
should be? Is there any other way this should be done?

Thank you in advance!
