Revision numbers for multiple projects seem to add up?

Hi! I have a question about svn-fisheye combo. I have multiple projects set up in my ondemand instance.

When I checked out one of my projects i noticed that right after creation it had a revision number of 32 which coincides with latest svn revision number on my other project. This is confusing, as i assumed that each project's svn repo is individual, and would have individual revision numbers, am i wrong? And the actual set up is that each "repo" is actually a branch of a single big repo that is attached to my ondemand instance (so that each project i set up becomes a branch with its own pseudo repo structure)?

Thanks!

Yes, you've got it. There is a single repository shared across all projects. Each project is a top-level directory within the repository. The main benefit of this approach is that you can copy or move files and directories between projects using normal svn commands and retain all of the history. Separate repos wouldn't allow for that. As you've noticed, the consequence of this is that revision numbers are also shared across projects.

Thanks a lot for the clarification. Let me ask you, with "on demand" set up, if there is a need (for whatever reason) to have real separate repos for each project, is it possible?

No, there isn't a way to create multiple repos in OnDemand.
