Re: Question for status on accumulation of warning on svn:external instead of immediate abort

Hello C. Michael,
thanks - this sounds very good.

The users of our Open Source project http://www.isoaglib.org are often
irritated, when their svn client aborts with ERROR when some svn:external are
not accessible for them. They fear to miss any important content .. and each
time I can tell them "the relevant direct content is already fetched before".

Thanks,
Achim
