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

Dale,

moving between projects is not that difficult, it's just not doable with the
standard
svn tool.

Moving a certain folder from one repo to another can be done in two steps:

svnadmin dump /path/to/sourcerepo | svndumpfilter include
/trunk/folder/to/move > dumpoffolder
svnadmin load /path/to/targetrepo < dumpoffolder

'dumpoffolder' contains the full history of that one folder, with all other
folders filtered out.

Only disadvantage is that all empty revisions are not filtered out, so
depending on the size
and lifetime of your sourcerepo, your target repo's revision nr. can
increase a lot.

Lieven.

Unless you absolutely never move code between the projects, use one
repository, because moving code between repositories is a nuisance.

But why is the log a problem? If you do "svn log" on a directory that is
the root of a project, you should only see the changes in the project.
