Hello all,

I have a question regarding checkout of a specific set of paths from a
Subversion repository.

The repository is structured as follows:


Normally, I am working with a single project trunk:

   svn co <repository>/projectA/trunk

The problem occurs when I want to make a change across multiple project
trunks. In this scenario, I want to be able to checkout all (or some) of
the project trunks in a single checkout, ignoring the project tags and

If I checkout the whole repository:

   svn co <repository>/

then I get a copy of all the tags and branches, which takes a great deal
of time and disk.

I only want to checkout a specific set of paths:


where I can make a common change and commit in a single revision.

Is this possible? How?

I'm running Subversion (1.1.4) on Debian Sarge.

Thanks for your help,
Jon Mann.
