vendor branch questions

From: Doyle, Patrick <WPD_at_dtccom.com>

I've read the chapter in the book about vendor branches and I have a couple
of questions...

1) The book says to import the vendor drop in to .../current and then to
copy it to .../1.0. Without having read that, I would have naively imported
a vendor drop into .../1.0 and then copied it to .../current. Is this just
a case of "If everybody else in the world goes left, Patrick will inevitably
choose to go right", or is there something more fundamental in the choice to
import into "current" and then copy to "1.0"?

2) What do folks do when the vendor drop is some other SVN repository? I
recognize that this can be something of a moving target -- especially when
one wants to track the trunk. My first attempt was to check out a working
copy and to just import it into my repository according to the book. That
worked fine (SVN cleverly ignored all of the .svn directories, as I
hoped/thought I'd read/ it would). But when I checkout out the vendor drop
into my own working copy, I found that none of the properties had been
imported. (Not too surprising).

Do folks use externals for this sort of thing? Do folks do something else?
