if I checkout those projects and edit a file in project 1, does that
mean project 2 and 3 will also get the revision update?
[/snip]

Yes it does. The "revision" is that of the repository and not of the
contents within. By "contents within" I mean this: "Proj1", "Proj2",
"Proj3" are really just directories within a Repository. The revision
is of the entire repository because there is no way for SVN to know that
"Directory1" is really a separate project!

I take it I should create separate repositories for each project?
[/snip]

Absolutely! In my environment, every project is related to a different
client (or different contact persons). So, each repository represents a
client contract!!! This way every client just says "Revision X of my
project" and we know that it is in Repository ABCD (for client ABCD).

Also, if a client/project needs to get archived (audited), it is easier
to audit a single project/repository at a time... Rather then mixing
everything into the same bucket!

Subject: Revisions confusion

I'm still a little confused about these revision numbers...

Say I have 1 repository (C:\Repo) and have 3 projects (C:\Repo\Proj1,
C:\Repo\Proj2 and C:\Repo\Proj3).

Now, if I checkout those projects and edit a file in project 1, does
that
mean project 2 and 3 will also get the revision update? In the manual is
talks about revisions effecting the entire repository but then it goes
on to
only show an example of one project.

I'm taking it effects the entire repository? I'm setting up my first
installation and we have many different projects. I don't want them all
to
have the same revision number... I take it I should create separate
repositories for each project?

Thanks.
