  • Possibly a silly question - but do you need the alpha/beta/gamma level at all? Why do you need the development team breakdown explicit in the repository? Won't that make things harder if modules move between teams?

    Curious...
    • The concern is that the various code bases are wildly divergent, but with extremely similar names (e.g., ControlPanel), that it would be confusing. The long term goal is to merge what we can.

      • Ah. Okay.

        In that case I think it depends on whether you think you're going to be tagging/branching all of a teams work (in which case you want your first layout) or tagging/branching on a per-module bass (in which case you want the second).

        The first layout also allows you to checkout an entire teams modules in one go, where with the second you would have to check out each trunk individually. I guess you could use svn:externals to get over that.

        Since you're planning to merge I'd probably go for the second, s
        • Well, I don't the target is to completely eliminate those distinctions. It's to have common infrastructure code that we can all share, but we'd be keeping our overall code bases separate.

          • If you want to keep you alpha/beta/gamma codebases separate, then consider:

            svn://svn.example.com/alpha/trunk/...
            svn://svn.example.com/beta/trunk/...
            svn ://svn.example.com/gamma/trunk/...

            It allows each team to check out their entire repo, which is a good thing. It's also equivalent to the situation where you're not three teams under the same roof, but three teams in three different organizations periodically sharing code amongst yourselves:

            svn://alpha.example.com/trunk/...
            svn://beta.example.com/trunk/.
