I have to review completely the way we're adding sources on our webtrees website; i'll try to make my question as clear as possible.

Here are the two opposite goals i want to reach:
  • limit the numbers of sources
  • limit the number of records per sources
Thus i want to make it easier for updaters to give the sources they used and still gives the visitors/members the ability to go straightforward to the sources.
Giving a source is a document (and isn't a place / repository), i must admit a source (for example a parish baptism register) can be found in different repositories (the parish, the county, internet, familyearch) through it is each time the same source.
Wouldn't it be a good thing to be able to choose the repository in the same form and the same time the source is chosen while adding a fact for an individual or family ?

If you are choosing a source, you have already added it. The source should have already had a repository selected when you added the source. If you are adding a new source, then on the new source screen you can select a repository.

Now... if you are working backward like I do, then I see a flow issue!

If I’m going to a new Repository, I would like to be able to add that repository to the database before going, so that once I get there I can add a new source that I’m using so that any facts I find can be added to the individual.

You can link a source to many repositories.

that's ok
when I a have a source linked to several repositories, can i select which repository i used for the record i'm updating ?
If my source is a parish register and for this register, i happenad to use the local paper register for the baptism and I just found the marriage act on familysearch and later i'll find the death ou burial act on a county website ... I would like to create a single source called 'city named' registers linked to several repositories and i would like to be able to slect a specific repository when adding/updating a fact.
Something like:
0 @X1@ INDI
1 NAME Robert Eugene /Williams/
1 SEX M
1 BIRT
2 DATE 02 OCT 1822
2 PLAC Weston, Madison, Connecticut
2 SOUR @X6@
3 PAGE Sec. 2, p. 45
3 REPO @X123@
1 DEAT
2 DATE 02 DEC 1842
2 PLAC Weston, Madison, Connecticut
2 SOUR @X6@
3 PAGE Sec. 45, p. 658
3 REPO @X122@
0 @X6@ SOUR
1 ......
1 REPO @X123@
1 REPO @X122@
2 .......
0 @X123@ REPO
1 NAME Family History Library
1 ....

Seems that's GEDCOM compatible ?
How could i achieve this ?

When you add a Source_Citation to a event/attribute and you choose to select a Source_Record (S_R), if that S_R can be found at multiple Repositories selecting a specific Repository make no sense, because the reader would/could go to any Repository with that S_R and find that information.

What you are entering is an S_R and the place that you know has that S_R.
