Controlling 1 projects included in another

Hi All

Bad subject, but didn't know how to phrase it.

I'm looking for some clear thinking about how I should approach this
situation. Many of you must have been here before me.

In this scenario:

I have my a set of includes that I maintain in their own right and
include in a number of other projects. Lets call these project A

So now I want to start project B, which includes project A, but will be
version controlled in its own right, as A is also now included in
project C.

So when working on B, I fix a couple of bugs in B's copy of A, and
perhaps add an enhancement, and at some point I'm going to want to
commit these back, and update them to C, and of course vice versa.

At the moment I"m keeping A in its own working copy, and using symbolic
links, but I don't see this as a durable solution. Esp when multiple
users and machines get involved.

Just to complicate things Project D, may be established, and would like
to only inherit the bug fixes, but not the new features, and perhaps
more dramatic changes and re-organisings of A which could de-stablise

Please, can any one suggest how I can tackle this?
