Well, I've inherited a code base which is many years old, and which has
never been under version control. Yes, I certainly could still organise
into functional sections, but I could imagine this meaning that a
developer simply makes a branch of "Call Maintenance" to make a change
to two of the fifty programs. Given that there may be many tickets for
such changes, I can imagine there being dozens of copies of the whole
functional area kicking about, rather than individual branches for each
ticket. Now, if I understand it correctly, this doesn't actually have
any repository size/space overhead, but it feels sort of untidy. I am,
however, very happy to accept guidance from those (much) more
experienced than me.
