Static Revision updates on commit using externals property

From: Scott Nicolson <Scott.Nicolson_at_oscmar.co.nz>

We intend to share quite a lot of code using the svn:externals property
but have an issue with the manual task of updating the revision of an
external definition on commit.


e.g. I have a project that uses an external library as such:


library -r xxx URL ( where xxx is the revision number of the repository
and the URL is the repo address)


If I make changes to the files at this external link in my project and
commit the files the revision in my externals definition still points to
the incorrect revision now as it is not automatically updated. I have
to manually update this and then do a second commit.


Two problems exist, one is the manual task of updating is unpleasant,
and two there is a revision of code in the repository that is not
entirely correct (the first commit without the updated external


Is there an automated way using tortoise (or other) to accomplish the
automatic update of the revision?

Is it possible (if there is an automated way) to do the process in one
step, meaning only one commit?


If anyone has a better suggestion on how to share code, please let me


Thank you,

Scott Nicolson
