Kevin covered pretty much everything, but I have a followup question
here Phyrefly. Why do you think there is a "lot of overhead" when
updating a project that's part of a larger repository? If a developer
only needs one or two particular small projects, then that's all they
should check out and all they need to update. In this scenario, there
are only very rare cases where one would need/want to check out the
whole repository.
