The lead programmer today told me that he thinks he will have 25 different
projects that will need hundreds of shared files between them. So my first
ideals have gone out the window and I'm going to have to re-think what I'm
going to do.

How big are the projects and what are the build/release process for the
shared files?

If projects are relatively small and the sharing is fairly add-hoc then I'd
go for a single project. However if you've got a separate release process
for the shared files then you could go for separate repositories. Rather
than checking out and building the shared files as part of the project, pull
in a jar (or lib or whatever) from a release directory somewhere.

In fact, I'd be tempted to have a separate build and release of the shared
files anyway so you can try and define some clear interfaces between the
projects and not end up with a tangle.

I have 4 programmers working on 2 different projects. All of them are using
cvs off the server.
I set up cvs originally as 2 different projects that each team could

Now they tell me that they have "Shared" files that each project needs.

How would you set it up? I thought I could set it up as one project with
three different modules so they could checkout
what they needed. Or Setup a third project with the shared files or is there
another idea?
