Yes - you are right. I didn't really tell what my goal is :-)
The problem of the setup I described before was that there are too many
steps to go when the framework changes.
In fact I just wanted to do a simple update after a dev commited his
changes to the framework.
After all I think I found the answer while trying to ask the question.
(I didn't understand my own problem...)

 From the book:
"Sometimes it is useful to construct a working copy that is made out of
a number of different checkouts. For example, you may want different
subdirectories to come from different locations in a repository, or
perhaps from different repositories altogether."


What I am trying to do is to do is to set up a new project (a new trunk)
which consists of file from the main framework trunk, the main module
trunk and some specific files which in fact belong to the trunk of the
project. So I am putting together a mix of 3 'sources' of the repository
to form a new project.

So I will now really try the externals thing as it really seems to be
the solution in this case.

Thanks a lot
