Names for subversion repositories

When I have to set up a subversion repository I like to give them special names. Especially when multiple subversion repositories are deployed inside organizations, it make sense to remove any confusion to name them something other than "subversion" or "svn".

I often prefer the name "shelf" for the repository that holds most of the technical information for a sysadmin team. This repository typically would hold directories like: docs/ rpms/ scripts/ tools/ per operating system or technology domain.
