Re: Help & advise on repository layout

Hi Bill,

Sorry for not following this thread for the past 1
week.

I have one big project, in which under it has many
modules to be created by many different developers.

Maybe I said it wrongly. The directory layout in
apache's doc root is:

/Project/common/module1
/Project/common/module2
/Project/html/module1
/Project/html/module2

The above layout is not the repository layout. I
don't know how to layout the repository.

One problem that I've thought of is, how do each
developers checkout their modules so that it falls
into place following the above directory structure.
They would have to do a checkout of
/Project/common/module1 and /Project/html/module1.
But wouldn't the other developer overwrite the .svn
directory when he check out /Project/common/module2
and /Project/html/module2?
