Re: file sharing across projects

Hi everyone,

    You can actually share files across multiple projects by using the
"svn:externals" property, but "svn commit" and "svn update" (and some
other commands) do not follow the links to the shared files, which makes
it possible to do an inconsistent update/commit/etc. So wrapper scripts
would probably be needed. The "-r" option should probably also be used
if "svn:externals" is used, so that the correct, matching version of the
shared files is retrieved. But if you change the shared files, then you
also have to change the "-r" option in all the directories that
reference them, but that's easier than changing copies of all the shared
files in every project.
