svn:externals question

From: Taco Walstra <walstra_at_science.uva.nl>

hello, I'm having problems with the svn:externals properties setting. Can
anybody give me an example for the following:
I have a checkout of a generic source directory, let's say
~/source/generic/
and for some other projects specific code:
~/source/specific/project1, project2 etc.
These projects need to be compiled with the generic source code, so
I would expect I could type something like (from directory project1):

svn propset svn:externals ../../generic project1

 this doesn't work because svn complains that project1 is not under version
control (but it is, there is a .svn directory and svn commit works)

(from the specific directory)
svn propset svn:externals ../generic project1
gives 'error parsing on 'project1' : '../generic'

(from the specific directory)
svn propset svn:externals svn://localhost/svnrepos/projects/generic project1
gives 'error parsing on 'project1' : 'svn blabla'

there is unfortunately no real documentation about this, while it's absolutely
an essential aspect of version control. Does anybody have some working
examples?
