I would suggest you check first to split your single repository into
projects, each component = one preject, but within the same
repos. That lets you move code etc. easier between components.
Of course, if components (or blocks of components) are completely
unrelated to each other, then separate repos should be more
recommendable. Look in the SVN book (documentation) for setting
up projects for more details.
