RE: One repository per project or one to rule them all?

I have a repository for each project I'm working on. Benefits for me are
improved speed of some actions ( log ) and clear repository revision number.

In combination with mod_dav_svn's SVNParentPath property it's simple
to setup also.

Moving from multiple projects in one repo to one per project is easy using
svnadmin dump & the dumpfilter script. Only problem with that script is that
it leaves empty revisions in the extracted repository.

Lieven.

Yeah, this is what made me choose to keep them all in one repository in the
first place...

I'm thinking that I'll end up splitting off my self-contained projects into
their own repositories and keeping the rest as-is.
