RE: Sharing files like in MS Visual SouceSafe

You don't say where this need to have the same file 'shared' in different
places comes from; but for any compiled code you could probably refactor
this into a single utility library; this can then be referenced by
other projects.

Where I've used 'sharing' before with VSS was with asp files that
go into more than location for a web site....

With SVN I now have a single copy of the file in the repository, and a
NAnt build script is used to deploy the file to different locations.
