RE: Update two SVN repositories

Ryan,
Thank you for your feedback. I've read the article and have understood the
concept.
What remains, is one question: Because I must download the vendors source
(several 100MB in my case) directly from a SVN repository, I would need to
always export the complete repository over the Internet just to completely
reimport all of it in a local SVN repository even if only a single character
has changed. If there really now way to somehow sync two separate SVN
repositories?

You should read the section of the book on Vendor Branches. You'll basically
ignore the fact that the vendor's code is available via Subversion at all,
and just periodically import new versions of their code into your repository
using a script called svn_load_dirs.pl. You can make a copy of their code to
anywhere else in your repository and start making changes. When you want to
update your code with new code of theirs, you can merge from the imported
version of their code to yours.
