  If I understand correctly, even with the svn:externals property, I
would have to somehow match revision numbers of shared projects and

  Say this is the organization:
    - rep1/shared
    - rep2/project1

  Now, when I need revision 341 of project1 repository, I must be aware that it
used revision 15 of shared repository. If there are other repositories
(like separate repositories for each third party library), the number
of revisions to track will increase. Is my understanding correct, or
can this be automated in some way?
