I believe the copy subcommand (and more generally, any subcommand that
fetches external items) should accept the --ignore-externals option.
If I copy from a repository URL into my workspace, sometimes I do not
want the externals fetched, just like I sometimes do not want them
fetched when checking out a URL directly. (The exact use case involves
a release management system that assembles and commits release trees
from "blessed" revisions of specific dirs and files... long story, but I
can provide more details if you need them.)
We are currently running 1.4.0 here on a SunOS 5.8 system. I have
checked the CHANGES file for versions 1.4.1 - 1.4.6, and it does not
look like this has been addressed so far.
Is this a bug or a feature? If you concur that svn copy
--ignore-externals is meaningful, I will file an issue in Issue Tracker.
