Well, I can help you with this part:

The answer is "It's whatever you want it to be". SVN has no built-in
concept of a "project" as it might map to some operational unit of work,
like some other tools do.

SVN has a repository which can contain folders and files... that's it.

Beyond that, you're free to correlate how you organize SVN with how you
work any way you please.

just for reference:
One installation of SVN on a server can service 0 to n repositories.
Any repository can contain artifacts from 0 to n efforts you might call

The mapping of a collection of work projects to 1 or more repositories
is normally determined by how you distribute projects' artifacts to
repositories and to the organization of folders within those repositories.

A repository would normally correspond to a single BDB or FSFS construct
in the server's file system, so if you're using BDB and have two
repositories, you'll have two BDB's (or FSFS "instances") -- one for
each respository.

Personally, I tend to set up one respository per project, but as I said,
SVN lets you set yourself up pretty much however you please. Hence,
both configurations you cite are possible.
