We just got Bitbucket Cloud and I'm gonna be migrating our svn repos to it. I'm thinking about how to organize things.
Bitbucket introduces 2 organization concepts, workspaces and projects. When creating a new repo, you specify the workspace and then the project (projects are specific to a workspace).
The workspace affects the git URL. Your repo's URL will be https://bitbucket.org/workspacename/reponame.git. The workspace names are on a first-come first-serve basis. For example you can't use 'atlassian' as your workspace name since it's already taken. I created a workspace with the name OurCompanyName to reserve it.
Projects seem to be only a basic web interface thing, a simple way to view related repos part of the same project. I guess it becomes more useful as the number of repos grows high.
I can see two approaches:
1) A single flat workspace, bitbucket.org/OurCompanyName/, with repos like proj1-repo1.git, proj1-repo2.git, proj1-commonsubmodule.git
2) One workspace per project, so bitbucket.org/OurCompanyName-proj1/repo1.git, bitbucket.org/OurCompanyName-proj1/repo2.git, bitbucket.org/OurCompanyName-proj1/commonsubmodule.git
Both work, but the 2nd seems way messier and I'd also be worried about some malicious unrelated user snatching up names like OurCompanyName-something and preventing us from using it. Also I can't seem to find a way to list all workspaces, you have to start typing their names to find them. Not great for discoverability.
How do you organize your repos? One flat workspace?
