to me it sounds like this could be a good application
for a workspace per "project", what do you think?
the good thing is that you still have cross workspace
operations like merge, update, clone that allow you
to keep the "general" content updated in a number of
different workspaces. however (see below) ...

... is there a reason why you do not just have the
content in a tree...

something like this:

 + projects
    + myproject1
       - title
       - description
       + other project stuff
    + myproject2
       - title
       - description
       + other project stuff

well, it is all fine... but unless you have a requirement of
actually having separate repositories i would probably suggest
to take the above tree based approach.
