Re: Advice on handling common code

Ben,

Thanks for the reply. I must admit I don't understand the concept behind
"svn:externals" to appreciate how you and others are using it. I need to
read the explanation more carefully.

The option that I can readily relate to is to possibly treat the common
code as a third-party vendor code.

Even then it's unclear how to combine in one release both the common and
the system-system code.
