Ok I get it now :) Sorry for the poor advice.

But wouldn't it get pretty tricky even with the relatives ?

You would have to set up your branch or tag externals to point at an
other directory in your repository at it's latest revision, then in
the case of a server adress change, modify this directory to point at
the new URL at the desired revision ?

Well, thinking about it, it should even work for Holger's problem,
supposing HIS repository keep the same URL (while relatives are not
there yet) ?

You'll get something as :

/shared/mylib_rev2 with externals pointing to -r 2 http://lib.com/svn/lib
/my_project pointing to http://myreposRUL/shared/mylib_rev2

So modifications would only occur in the /shared directory, leaving
the old revisions with links working ?

Not sure I've been clear, neither I'm right, again :)
