Ok, not a bug. But its hard for my to accept that subversion lacks
such a main feature. I agreeing with you, that my wish not work with
links to external repositories. But subversion has no extra mechanism
for repository internal links. Versions control over more than one
reporisitory is complex and thus its ok if the handling is complex
too. But keep simpel things simpel, with this in mind, subversion need
a one command solition for the simpel task "check out a non HEAD
version of my project that located in one repository". Of course,
every nontrivial software project needs re-usable components. From
this it follows directly that all real projects has links to common

With the information got from you, I will formulate my wish more

The function that check out a extermal link should recognize if is a
"internal link" into the same reporisitory and if the link self has
no revision number check out the version given by the command line.

As a reward for this little change, for all on repository projects we
can forget the tricky check out rules. Always on checkout command for
the expectet result a working copy from the project in the correct

Ist nobody here, that dream the same dream? ;-)

I've already programming a work around tool, but this is not the same
as if no work around would needed.
