Re: Problem with "Use specified module name:"

It depends.

svn:externals is the right way to do it when you want your project's
dependencies to be the latest version. For a lot of projects though,
it's better if the dependencies are frozen most of the time and only
sync'd occasionally when the dependency reaches a new stable state. In
these cases it's best to "svn cp" the version you want into your project
try and then do merges from mainline as needed.
