Well, that applies to directories and not to specific files. So how
would you have COMMITTERS work with modules? Create a new directory,
place it in there and then use a module for that? Possible, but not

I tried this:

% cd /tmp
% svnadmin create repos
% svn co file:///`pwd`/repos r
% cd r
% cp /etc/group COMMITTERS
% svn add COMMITTERS
% svn mkdir trunk
% svn ci -F /dev/null
% svn pe svn:externals trunk
  COMMITTERS file:///tmp/repos/COMMITTERS
% svn ci -F /dev/null
% svn update
At revision 2.

Fetching external item into ./trunk/COMMITTERS

svn_error: #21069 : <Filesystem has no item>
  file not found: transaction `5', path `/COMMITTERS'

Two things about this. First, links to files don't work, but
more interesting, it would be good to have relative URLs in the
svn:externals. If I have a repository, I'd like to refer to other
locations in that repository without knowing the full URL for the

If I move the repos, I'll have to update the svn:externals, which
would be pretty easy to forget to do.
