relative to the scheme just means you can omit the https: at the front - e.g.

//server/repositoryA/Project1/DirA DirB
//server/repositoryB/Project2/DirB DirA

All this means if that if at some point a client connect to the
repository with svn:// (instead of https://) then the external would
still work

If the repositories are on the same server (like the 2 above would be)
then you can go one better and omit the //server bit to give...

/repositoryA/Project1/DirA DirB
/repositoryB/Project2/DirB DirA

Now when the client gets the external it takes the schema (svn:// or
https://) AND the server name from it's connection and prepends that
to the external before getting it.

Does that make it clearer?
