Repo on USB - But Drive Letter Changes!

From: David Gardner <jgg.lists_at_gmail.com>

If i checkout a repo from my usb drive onto my local drive, it creates
all the hidden ".svn" directories with the drive letter reference that
the USB currently has.

Maybe it's "L:" now, but it could be "K:" later!

is there any kind of dynamic reference that SVN will work with?

I can't assign an IP address to my usb drive can I?

I know there are apps out there that permenantly map your usb drive to
a certain letter. But I'd rather avoid those if possible. If I
decide it should be Z and then later on, my employer decides to put a
shared drive as everyone's Z drive, then I'm hosed.

I guess, worst case, I could write a little exe program that would
cycle through the .svn data and do a broad find/replace of that drive
letter with the one the usb is currently mapped to.

But I'm hoping there's something better.

Wait, I wonder if I can basically make my USB drive into a little
mini-web server? I'll look into that.
