Re: What happened to tags/branches with svn:externals?

I understand the "problem" that the script would have - although I would
call them restrictions instread.
For me and my situation, I would not see any disadvantage. Compared to what
I would need to do without that (manually update svn:external references
after the copy) this would be a huge advantage.
Doesn't work accross repositories? - Not a problem, just restrict its usage
to "local" svn:external references. Needs to access remote repositories? No,
if you restrict to local usage. Potentially slow? Not if you restrict to
local use and in any case much much faster than manually doing the change.

Lets say the script already addresses my needs. The problem I have is that I
am on a Windows workstation, svn runs on a Linux server. I don't want to ssh
into the server to manually trigger the script.
If you are (still) not considering this as an enhancement, then how could I
trigger that from the Windows workstation?
