RE: Re: Can SVN share files and projects?

G'day Jochen,

Another option would be to use versioned symlinks (ie. symlink the
file(s) you want to share and then check in the symlink to the repos).
Unfortunately this only works on 1.1, and only on *nix systems.

I totally agree that this would be a handy feature for subversion to
provide on Windows - I have a need for it as well, and thought that
the addition of symlinks in 1.1 would solve the problem on Windoze as
well as *nix. Unfortunately that turned out to be a rather basic
misunderstanding on my part (see the thread entitled "Symlinks from
Windoze?" for more details).
