Way to go! I meant to propose something like this, but hadn't got around
to it. In fact I wanted to point out that
Modules are Configurations
For anyone not familiar with the term (what're you doing on the SVN
list then?), a configuration in the CM sense is a collection of object
versions -- somewhat like a directory, except that you can collect
objects from different directories -- even different repositories --
and membership in a configuration isn't necessarily limited to a
specific version, it can be a symbolic name, too -- a tag, that is.
I've always wanted to be able to tell CVS to follow the tip of
branch A in directory B in repository C, and remember that in the
repo, without that sticky tags crud ... I hate sticky tags, they
stick to the wrong places.
