It's not meant to be used that way.

Instead, you should get a working of each area that you want to be
able to update separately. For example, get a working copy of glover,
another of chumani, another of challenge, etc. Arrange these working
copies in any directory structure locally that makes sense to you—
either the same way as it is in the repository, or any other way.
Then issue update commands on these separate applications as needed.

Of course, this way, you cannot in a single revision commit changes
made across multiple applications. But if that is something you are
wanting to do, then one wonders whether they should really appear to
be separate entities in the repository...
