Re: Question about checkouts

I'm sending this to the list so others can provide their input.

In answer to your question, as far as I know, what you want is not possible
using Subversion as is. If you don't need to make modifications to the files
you could certainly write a wrapper script to use 'svn export' and copy the
files into a single directory.

Of course, it also begs the question, why do you want to do that? Why keep
file1, file2, file3 and file4 in separate directories if you want to access
them from the same directory?
