RE: file sharing across projects

This is working practice rather than a subversion practice answer.
I avoid file sharing managing dependencies between projects, supported by
a simple build system.
In every project I have a dependency file listing all the packages from which
it depends along with the specific version.
To save build time I have a distribution repository (a shared directory) containing
pre-built version of common packages for all the version.
The build system unpack this pre-built packages and makes a local coherent environment.

My half a cent.
