Plese do NOT top post, as it breaks the logical flow of the MSGs...

In chapter 4 of the book
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.branchmerge.html or any other
resource on branching (and possibly tagging).

My idea is that it may be valuable to keep all the comments and other
history for the project. For this you need to clone the repository. A
quick search didn't reveal any ready-made scripts for that (that use
only svn, NOT svnadmin)...
Shouldn't be taht hard to even write that in bash. The idea is to
protect from the possibility of the other repository gone, and to have
it locally, so you can have quicker access.
So suppose you have a copy of the original repository (you can skip that
step for now). Say the trunk it is at $URL_vend/trunk.
You create your repository at $URL

cd work
svn co $URL
svn mkdir trunk branches tags
cd trunk
svn export -r 5548 $URL_vend/trunk .
svn cp trunk tags/vnd-5548
svn commit -m "Initial import for $URL_vnd/trunk@5548"

svn commit -m "bla-bla"
svn merge $URL_vend/trunk@5548 $URL_vend/trunk@5570 trunk/
svn commit -m "Sync to $URL_vend/trunk@5570"

The down part is that you have to "remember" (use svn log) which was the
last revision you synced to.

I think the above should do it.
And if you have an exact clone of the vendor's repository (in your
vendor repository :-) you can roll-back changes if needed very easy.

Initially, I thought that using svn:externals could make that easier,
but after some thinking, might be wrong.
