 Having shared repositories is also convenient for migrating projects from dev to test/prod environments as shared connectors are referenced by name. I.e. a project can query a database that is specified by connector "Customers". In a test environment a connector named "Customers" can point to a test database, while in a production environment a connector named also "Customers" point to a production database. When moved from one environment to another, the project will use necessary connector automatically. Having shared repositories is also convenient for migrating projects from dev to test/prod environments as shared connectors are referenced by name.
