Hey fediverse,
What is your opinion regarding mono repo?

@jlhertel
Isn't it: "it depends"? When you are doing mostly in house product development, and you are big enough it seems to be a good idea. In other cases it might make less sense.

@jacek
Curious way to see it.
I have yet to see a monorepo that works better than multi repo.
A lot of examples I see almost always forget to say how painfully is for developers to use it (think searching on got history, or even the eventual slowness that happens).

@jlhertel
Well Google does it, and I would be hard pressed to say it makes no sense in their case.

Obviously at certain scale you need non standard tooling, and I with you that using busy monorepo with plain git might be a pain.
