I am using the following CVS feature that is not possible with SVN
Assume you have a repository with the following structure:
Further assume, c/ includes some stuff that has to be kept private,
With CVS I do:
# CVSROOT=server:/path/to/repos export
Now I have all what I need, but prevent checkout of c/.
The drawback with cvs is that you never should run "cvs update -d"
With SVN this seems not to be possible.
# svn co -N https://server/repos
I wanted to add subdirs later, but I didn't find a possibility to do
It would be nice to be able to just do a
# svn co a
Without an absolute URL this should mean, add this subdir from the
What do you think about that idea?
