Hi Hardi,

Do you have more than one Project? If you do, I'd consider putting
each project at the top level of the repository, with either a single
"branches" and a "tags" directory alongside common and html, or
individual "branches" and "tags" directories under each module,
depending on how your workflow works. You may also want to consider
top-level "branches" and "tags" directories in order to tag/branch an
entire project. Of course, this assumes that individual developers may
be creating branches and tags of modules as they develop. If you don't
foresee that happening in your process, the top-level directories may
be sufficient.

Another possibility that I've found works well is to have a top-level
branches directory with subdirectories for each developer. That way,
developers can create personal branches as they develop, and other
developers can avoid the expense of downloading those branches by only
checking out their own branches directory.

One of the biggest benefits of Subversion's copy paradigm for
branching/tagging is the flexibility it affords you as a user for
laying out your repository to match your own development process. You
aren't even limited to putting branches and tags in directories called
"branches" or "tags". For example, you could have a top-level
"releases" directory, where you put copies that tag releases of various

Hope this helps,
