development of externals?

From: <Wolfgang.Stoecher_at_skf.com>

we have several files that are shared among several projects. Currently
they live in a separate path and are linked to the actual software
projects in the IDE.
Now I am thinking of using the externals-feature of SVN to make sure that
everybody has the right (currently always: latest) version of the shared
files without having to inform everyone, when to update the shared files.
But does this still allow to further develop the shared files from within
one of our software projects? What is the best practice for working with
externals, especially when thinking of also further developping the shared
files? Is there a way of doing this without an additional test-project for
the shared files?

thank you,
