Re: bugreport: commit of two 'external' directories fails

Indeed it would result in two revisions/commits.

But if you have several svn::externals directories, it is a lot of
manual burden to go over each individual directory and do a separate
commit.

Can you add an 'advanced' option to allow such multi-commit, for
developers who know what they are doing?
Thanks,
Erwin
