I think you want to 'svn update' the latter two dirs from inside the
workingdir. The difference is that 'update' operates in a working-dir context
and also updates the meta data stored in the .svn dir while 'checkout'
creates a working-dir.

The 'sources' working-dir doesn't know anything about project1 and common
because those were created independently.
