Re: Recursively commiting files placed in svn-externals projects

And, I would submit, committing externals from within a different working
copy would be the wrong thing to do.

An external project is a logically and physically separate entity from the
main project. If a developer makes changes in the external project while
working on the main project, those changes need to be vetted differently
than changes in the main project. By the same token, a developer working on
the external project is not working on the main project and needs to deal
with the external project differently.
