Hi All,

   Apologies if this is the incorrect forum for my question.

I recognise that Subversions is meant primarily as a replacement for CVS, so
the answer to my question may be "No, because CVS doersn't either.", but here

Is there any automated way within Subversions, or any plans in the future, for
supporting nested repositories?

What I want to do is:

Checkout a project to my notebook. Work whilst disconnected from the network,
with the ability to checkin my changes to a local repository on my notebook.
Reconnect to the network, and checkin my most recent local version to the
central repository.

This feature would also allow a development team to have a private
sub-repository that they coordinate with, and from which they then checkin
stable versions to a parent repository. Such nesting could be arbitrarily

This is not impossible with CVS, but difficult and error-prone. Because of the
way CVS associates checked-out files with the repository, the associations
are not easily modified. Currently, I use import/export manually to move
changes from one repository to another, but this is error-prone. It would be
much easier and more reliable if I could checkout from one repository, and
then checkin to another repository somehow, or alternatively, update one
repository directly from another.

All thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated.
