RE: Re: Copy or externals for vendor drops?

I may be misunderstanding, but you can refer to a specific revision in
the svn:externals property, thus not referring to a volatile target.
There's a good example in the book.

For external libs, I have a completely separate repository. I then use
the
svn_load_dirs script to import point releases of these libraries. This
has
for me the advantage that I don't have to search for a special release
in X
different repositories, I really have all used code backed up and (this
being
a main difference to svn:externals) that I'm not referring to a volatile

target that changes completely out of my control.

Just a suggestion, YMMV.
