I can't see any reason that they would have any problem with multiple
respositories :-)

Firstly my apologies for the lame corporate question, this isn't my style
but you know those real conservative types who haved used M$ all their life.
Also this is entirely what if, because I've already told all my friends that
SVN is the best thing since marmite (little kiwi joke ;-)) and he obviously
does think SVN is mature. Hence the situation. So anyway sometime these
anal corporate types want somebody to *guarantee* that a product is going to
work beyond the people who set the system up, eg the actual developers
(being you'all). So the question is a general one, rather than a specific
one as yet. So given a situation where somebody wanted to pay you guys for
commercial support, would you accept? Can I spout as one of my reasons for
going with SVN is that "commerical support" is offered?

Hope that is clear, I've had very little sleep last night ... got a newborn

Awesome and thanks,
