Pros and cons of significantly large repositories

Hi,

 

My company is currently trying to use Subversion not only to store code
for new projects but also dumping of binary builds and internal
documentation (processes, meetings, etc). The question most often asked
is "Are you going to use a single repository or multiple repositories?"
I know a Subversion repository can hold any amount of data, but I want
to know is:

 

What are the pros and cons for having really large repositories versus
multiple, smaller repositories?

What experiences have people had with repository administration and
general usage that have made a particular choice good or bad?

 

I appreciate your feedback and insight!

 

Regards,

Andrew
