Repository = the highest level entity.
All commits are "across" the repository.
You can have multiple repositories (on single or multiple locations). They each will start at commit 0 (Repository creation)
And will indeopendently increnment from there. (A commit to reposittory 1 will NOT be recorded/recognised etc within Repository 2).
Beneath Repository you can break down into your own High Level Qualifier (which "looks" like a Directory)
and further down into Lower Level Qualifiers (as deep as you like)
At some point you will shove in your Trunk/Tag/Branch structure (to manage Parallel developments, code branches and "Baselines") at a logical (and managable granularity).
svn doesn't enforce any of it ... so you could have Trunk/Branch/Tag at HLQ Level 1
or beneath any chosen level (per App, Per sub-app, per-technology) - its all up to you.
You can even mix and match (Trnk/BR/Tag at different levels within a single repository - Although I really wouldn't recomend this!!!
Thanks Bob and Drew.

We are currently using CVS. So it’s convenient to request script changes because we do not have a single owner for scripts, any developer can touch and make changes .There are 100s of scripts and some scripts change frequently (daily) and some may not change at all.
We do not have any of the new tools/technologies in place. Moving to SVN is one of our first efforts to migrate from old tools.
Number of developers- about 40-50 globally
We have many projects- java based, flex based, C/C++, shell scripts and perl, website(html,js) code, DB.
Java and flex projects would be good candidates for svn. I am debating whether to move the scripts to SVN or just leave it in CVS. I am not sure how it’s done everywhere else. What is the workflow of a code release using SVN? Do the developers cut a tag every time they need to push some code to production? So for scripts it could mean they need to create tags every day?
Right now the developers request code change through a request form which scans for files and the versions. They select the files and request a code change. How can I achieve something like this in SVN? Please let me know if this needs to be a separate thread. Thanks a lot.
