Re: svn:externals forces access protocol?

but where do you specify that? If you put it in the svn:externals
property, then everyone who checks out the parent project needs to
check out the child external project as the username specified in the
svn:externals property. But typically, the desired username is
specified once in the URL given in the svn co command line when the
parent module is checked out.
