Re: Repository Configuration Question

I've voted with 1 repository per project.

If a repository with 1,000 projects in it gets hosed, you'd lose 1,000

If a repository with 1 project in it gets hosed, you'd lose 1 project.

Even with backups, do you want the developers of 999 projects waiting
while you
restore a repository to fix an issue with 1?
