Resources to help design a subversion repository

Hello all,

I've been a casual user of subversion for a while (just doing basic
developer functions, check out, check in, branching, etc...). I'm going to
be in charge of designing from the ground up a new repository layout for the
massive amount of source code my coworkers and I deal with.

I was wondering if anybody could point me to any good resources, books, or
anything that could help me as I read up as much as possible about designing
an SVN repository as well as just good source code management procedure
(this is for a web application, so anything that might cover how to manage
the source code for a massive web application would help. For example,
branching the trunk for various projects then merging / integrating it back
to the trunk, deployment from subversion, etc...).

Just off the top of my head, the way I would set it up would be have the
trunk and make each person / group working on a project to branch from the
trunk to develop the project and then merge back into trunk when they are
done. Like this, the release # that the branch was merged to is the one that
is deployed. Hopefully this makes sense.

Anyway, I would like to research more into this, so any resources are
