Subwcrev & externals switch & explicit revision numbers

Hello,

in our project we have some libraries as externals from the same repository included.

Now we use in the trunk folder some libraries, which have already explicit revision numbers (tagged version) and some linking to the non-explicit revision numbers (trunk).

I use the -e switch to identify test compilations (version number include revision number, local modification and mixed update revision) from our program, before they where later tagged.

But when using the -e switch I get the mixed update revision indication, when I use an explicit revision number as external.

So now I am unable to see, if the compilation, was not correct updated (mixed revisions) or has an explicit revision number in the external defintion.

I think, it would be nice, to have a switch, that ignores externals, that are fixed to an explicit revision number. When an not explicit revision number is used, it should check the files in the external path and include the result to the main program (like the current implementation of -e switch).

What do you think of this option?

Jan
