Re: useing a different local file structure to the repository

If you want to keep stuff in distinct repositories, use "externals"
to copy in the shared stuff in the system folder. See the svn-book
for details.

If you are going to keep stuff in the same folder, one possible
workflow is (basically) the "vendor branch" workflow. Again, see the
svn-book for details. The basic idea, though, is you place the
"master" system folder in its own discrete area, which undergoes
whatever updates you want (e.g. via tags for new releases etc). Then
you use a branch off the master (typically a tag) into the individual
projects. This is slightly different to a true share, since you need
to remember to pull a new version of system into each project, but it
does mean you can stage updates to projects independently.
