Re: Propset and externals

From: Tj Warren <tj_at_sage-inc.com>

    common.h and init.h are actually directories with nothing more than
the single file represented by the directory name. (e.g;
/common.h/common.h ) The reason for this is that the common repo is
protected in the fact that only the head developer has write access to
it. We don't want just any developer changing header files. Easy enough
fix. :)

    The name of the external is irrelevant. This is just to keep things
simple and that we know what headers are common and what headers are
pulled from the common repo.

    The problem we are facing is we have a large repo that has many
projects within it and each project has different externals that need to
be pulled depending on the project.

    We made up this batch file after redesigning the tree a bit and
created this batch file to assist with creating the externals, but they
aren't exporting correctly. Is there a way to tell where it is dying? or
am I missing a bigger picture?

Thanks again -
