Nikolaj,
 
Welcome to subversion. I hope you find it works out well for you.
 
When it comes to inter-project dependencies, you will find that svn does not handle things the same way as vss. Look into svn:externals. This is probably the best option for you at this time.

Subject: Inter project dependencies

Hi!

I have been asked to look into subversion as it has been decided that the project I am working on should be moved from visual source safe to subversion i order to ease collaboration with external partners.

I think I have gotten the hang of the basics by reading the subversion book and trying out a few examples on a "playground" subversion server we have setup.

My question is this. In the project we currently have several sub projects, each containing a separate application. Each application may however have dependencies to several of the other projects (App B may require a few source files that exists in app A's project folder). How do I setup these dependencies in subversion so that, a: whenever I checkout a sub project, I automatically get the files I need from the other sub projects, and b: each file exists only one in the subversion server and on my hard drive?

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.
