Re: Advice on code sharing

I don't know which version of the documentation you been reading (I
have svnbook for v1.5 r3305) and whilst I haven't used externals, from
reading the book, it seems that you can specify, in the external,
which revision gets checkout when someone checks out or updates their
working copy. That way no one gets any nasty surprises when the share
is being updated. And then once the changes to the share has been
finalised, you then update the external, which is also versioned. So
the next time someone updates their working copy they get the new

However, your continuous integration scripts for both packages will
need to always get the latest revision to ensure changes that break
the other package get noticed as early as possible.
