Not sure. Are you saying that a repository can never go faulty by any
user actions? (granted we implement all the security measures you

The other side of the issue is political I guess (perhaps a bigger
factor than the techincal). It'd be easier for me to say, here's your
repository, go do whatever you want, than to say, here's your project,
and any time you want to make changes to it (add users, permission,
etc.), let me know.

Other than that, would there be a techincal reason why a single
repository might be a better option?

Messes up the repository in what way?

Only give each pm/dev team access to the sections of the repository they
need access to, and definitely don't give them access to the filesystem
where the repository actually lives. Once these 2 things are locked
down, what level of "messing up a repository" are you concerned about?
