The syntax for svn:externals is:

<localname> <remoteurl>

So you could set the svn:externals property of the appropriate
directory to the following value:

Solomon svn://localhost/VENDOR_REPO_ROOT/Solomon/Version/V55

This will check out the code in svn://localhost/VENDOR_REPO_ROOT/
Solomon/Version/V55 into a directory in your project called Solomon,
which it will create for you.
