Multiple repositories on windows

Hi All,

I am _not_ trying to masquerade using a new subject line, but I figured
this subject was more appropriate as I received only two response for my
previous topic "Subversion on windows using symbolic links".

I can't believe I am the first person trying to implement Multiple
repositories on windows..:)

Here is my issue:

I installed Subversion on Linux and created a new repository for every
project. I used symbolic links in Linux to centralise the hooks and conf

Is there an equivalent in windows if not what is the alternative or work
around to implement a single repository per project with centralised
hooks and conf directories.

My recommendation :
I have done some investigating and soul searching and came up with the
following strategy. Could any Subversion on windows gurus please review
my plan and advice me of any potential "dragons" waiting for me down the
path, or confirm my approach is appropriate.

1. Leave hooks and conf directories for each project as they are.

2. In the hooks/pre-commit.bat,in each project repositories, include an
absolute reference to a perl script (/repos/hooks/per-commit.pl) in a
centralised location.

3. In the conf/svnserve.conf include an absolute reference to the
passwdb file password-db = /repos/conf/passwdb

The above approach, as I view it, will provide me the flexibility to
have a single repository per project and at the same time minimise my
administration work as I have only single version of the password
database and hooks.

I am sorry for the inconvenience this new email may have caused.

Any help is mush appreciated.
