Re: many projects: one or many repositories?

It's really up to you... Larger repositories will be slower, but how much slower will really depend on how big your repo is, both in terms of size and number of revisions.

Multiple repositories have more administrative overhead.

Personally, I keep things separate, unless the projects are related, and I can see myself merging between them.

Keep in mind that currently there is no good way to remove things from the repo, so if you move a project out on its own, or retire it entirely, there is no good way to reclaim the space used by it in the repo.

Subject: many projects: one or many repositories?

Hi folks,

We have a dozen or so projects going on around here, and currently we
have all in the same SVN repository. However, we wonder if this is too
many eggs in one basket, and perhaps we should split the repo and put
each project in its own.

Are there generally accepted best practices for this sort of thing?
Other suggestions?

Many thanks,
