Managing multiple RTC projects

Brian Gillan (3215330) | asked Jul 10 '08, 6:49 p.m.
I've looked through some of the online help and also searched through
messages here to try to get a sense of how to use projects to manage
various development efforts, but it's still not very clear to me.

We will initially be piloting with one med/large group (~80 users), and
one small group (starting with ~5 users). The two development efforts
are completely independent from each other. I don't believe there's any
issue with visibility of each other's artifacts by the other team, but
we want to make sure things such as querying, reporting, etc. are scoped
on the project level and not across projects.

Are there documented best practices yet, or perhaps this is covered
somewhere I haven't located yet, on use of separate repositories versus
projects for managing various development efforts?

We have the potential need to support 100's of projects, and I frankly
can't envision using a separate repository for each of these. So, I'm
trying to understand when to use projects versus repositories to manage
these efforts.

Thanks, Brian

Related to my question about when to use projects versus separate
repositories, are there any plans to support export/import of projects?
That is, if a given project grows to the point where it might warrant
setting up a new repository either to scale for growth in development or
in order to provide complete isolation, would it be possible to export
a "project" (including all related work items, queries, source code
artifacts, and etc.) such that they could be imported into another

Hi Brian

I think you are looking for something along the lines of

I don't think this completely captures what you suggest - but you may want to either add to this work item or create a new one.

Thanks Anthony, that pretty much captures what I'm interested in for the
ability to move a project from one repo to another. I've subscribed to
the work item and will request an update.

Regards, Brian
