Each of our repositories will be read/write for the group that's responsible
for that major product group, and read-only for everyone else. Our network
admin wants to set up the access rights to the various repositories using
groups under Windows and he's of the opinion that will be easier than trying
to manage it in Apache. I have to defer to his greater expertise on that
one, as I don't have much expertise at all in that area.

We should only have a few repositories, one for each of our product groups.
Individual projects would only be created under one of those umbrellas,
allowing us to use 'svn mkdir' for the vast majority of cases. Those major
product groups have been a part of our business for years, so I don't see
much change happening there that would necessitate creating a new repository
very often, if at all.

Thanks for the response.
