I fixed issues
#4560 is a documentation issue and I think this can be fixed after branching.
When writing a testcase I tried to create ugly samples and did something like
Which applies "../deps/sqlite" to the current url to determine the url for the external. After pinning this usually won't work.
I think that (as nice to have) we should pin these paths to an actual repository relative url *or* not pin them. The current behavior of pinning them with a peg revision (most likely pointing to a different path after the copy) is very likely to cause the external to break after the copy.
