Subject RE: Breaking up a monolothic repository
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2013 13:03:16 GMT
I can see Trent's view point that people are weird and get freaked out by the unexpected (where
they might expect the revision numbers to be relatively low).

I guess what we should be providing him are points like you do make to help him sell why this
isn't an issue to the end users.

Like Les says, if someone performs a large batch of commits to a particular branch then the
trunk revision numbers are going to leap forward (unexpectedly). So what to sell those folks
concerned about it is that they're experiencing this already.
