This is my first post to the SVN mailing list.
OK, here is a feature that I miss.
Most of my projects uses some common modules.
OK, there are methods of enshuring this
Both of this methods works, but are uncomfortable.
A muth better way of enshuring this is IMHO:
By doing so, on a 'checkout to revision' SVN is now able to checkout the correct external revisions, too.
This may be controlled by an additional option, so the user may checkout only the main files to that revision or althougth all externals.
Storing the revision mumbers of the externals is easy as long as they are not modified inside the working copy at the moment of the checkin.
IMHO this will be a great improvement of the external feature.
Whitout that I had to manualy edit the revisions of externals when I do a TAG or BRANCH of a current revision to enshure, that if this was later checked out I had the complete environment that was needed for this TAG/BRANCH.
Any comments ?
