nfs shared source code.

Hi!

Why does svn:externals not permitt an absolute path or at least ../
I get the error:

svn: Invalid svn:externals property on '.': target involves '.' or '..'
or is an absolute path

If you have many users at a company and all are supposed to use the same
tag of a source code of a component (or many components). And the
components are biiigg. It would be very favourable if they could share
the code?

The number of bytes needed in my working copy would be many many gigs.

Multiply that with a couple of hundred users and it is not feasable.

Regards
Andreas
