Re: Problem with "Use specified module name:"

Wouldn't the part of the ant script you would be replacing with
svn:externals just be a series of checkout commands for different
repository directories to the working copy directory? svn:externals is
just a text file with a list of repository URLs. I would hardly call
that "locked in" but if you're really concerned about it you could keep
a master copy of the externals for each project in an actual text file
in the build directory and have ant reference that and also use it to
create and regenerate the svn:externals property (you would need a hook
script to do this when the externals change). This way the people who
don't want to do the eclipse import team project step could still use
the ant checkout method.
