RE: [Subclipse-users] Externals property bug - folder UI

Hi Mark,

        I was trying to figure out what was happening with Katherine and I
finally realised that I was missing a little yet very important detail on her
case. Her svn:external entry points to a local "directory tree", not a single
folder. Example:

Folder1/Folder2/Folder3 https://someaddy/somerep/someremotefolder

...where the above svn:external entry is set, say, on "Folder0"

        So the API actually creates the local tree and downloads the external
folder onto "Folder3", but "Folder1/Folder2" remains unversioned, which seems
logical since they were just created.

        I suspect that Subclipse (or the lower library) may be barfing when it
finds such an svn:external entry mixed with unversioned folders in between.

        Do you think this is a case that was well thought over by the Subversion
guys? At least we never considered using svn:externals like this in my team.

Best regards,
