RE: externals - date instead of revision number?

Yeah, ok. But if repositories get rebuilt from the ground up then the
dates will also be different (and unusable), won't they?

I have never used "svn update" with the date parameter, so I can't say
anything about it. But I may have around 20 commits each day, so if I
create an external that points to yesterday, which of the 20 commits I
did yesterday will it use? The latest? Or the first? I think specifying
it using a date is quite vague... But maybe I'm missing the point here?
