RE: Repository Layout - One Vs. Many

OK! This is starting to come together in my poor, overworked mind. I'm
leaning towards one single repository with many projects inside it.
Each project contains the typical trunk, branches. So for Project1
under trunk, I'd have all of my typical directories (build, doc,
install, etc.).

If I decide to branch from there (say for a new version of the same
Project with specific changes) I'd copy everything from the trunk to a
branch directory and name that branch something useful.

If I have completed, releasable (or testable) version I'd copy that to
the tags directory with a useful name that I could track myself. So,
under tags\ I might have Release 1.0.1 and Release 1.0.2, etc or Testing
1.0.1, Testing 1.0.5001, etc. I name these myself and I'd know what's
next because I'm naming these manually.

Am I close?
