Alright. I saw your post (http://lists.fossil-scm.org:8080/pipermail/fossil-users/2014-January/015012.html) before I asked this question, btw. Did you start using --nested after that moment in time? I guess this sort of thing is personal, with added downside that it's quite costly to "try it a bit" (I mean change from one big repo to finer grained repos). We'll see; when frustration with one big repo rises above some limit here, perhaps I try with small repos (and perhaps back again :-) Michai _______________________________________________ fossil-users mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.fossil-scm.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/fossil-users
