When I first started using subversion, the Global Revision number drove me crazy, but after fighting it for a while, I just created separate repositories for each project and it works great. I think the thing that messed me up for a while was thinking that each "server" could only have one repository, but after I realized that it is nothing more then the path that you connect to and I could create as many repositories as I needed on one server/svnserve, I started to think of Repositories as if they were projects. Everything cleared up in my head.

Hope this helps.
