combining repos

my team currently owns ~20 different maven modules (with a single repo for each). Is there a way in stash to create a single project, with all 20 repos underneath, or is the intent for a 1 to 1 mapping between projects and repositories?

There are two options. Subtree and submodule. Here is a good demo of each (http://blogs.atlassian.com/2013/05/alternatives-to-git-submodule-git-subtree/).

You can arrange your repos into projects as you please. (They can also be moved from one project to another if things change.) The two main organising factors should be
- The logical grouping of the repos (part of the same product, owned by the same team, etc.)
- Common access control requirements (everybody who can read/write a project can read/write all the repos in it, with the exception of restrictions set by branch permissions)

[As Timothy pointed out, you can arrange your repos as submodules of each other, if necessary/convenient, but this is independent of how you organise them into projects.]
