Re: Same Working Dir Different Repos?

Hey cool,

thank you all for answering so fast.

I think I'll do that special client thing.

Some of you wonder why I need to have separate repos for product files
and sources.

Here is the answer:

I'm currently developing a system to build packages from product files
(binaries, libs, docs, etc.). Product files are not source files in the
common sense but can be considered as such because they are the sources
the packages are produced from.

 I want the product files as well as the packages to be versioned thus
being able to reproduce everything everytime. I also want to be able to
attach attributes to them e.G. comments, product names, etc.

I decided to build my system upon subversion. The point is, that svn
isn't yet used in my company. Some use CVS some no versioning tool at
all. It should be up to the users which kind of tool they use.
 But they will have to use my packaging system to check in their product
files. This would normally create a .svn-dir in their working directory.
If they later decide to also use svn for their source files they would
have to use the same repo which I created for the product files. And
that's something I don't like because the packaging system is mission
critical. Another point is that they might want to setup a private
svn-server on their own machine.

Ok, I think I made it clear now. Does somebody now off his/her head
where the ".svn" is defined in the svn-sources?
