RE: Partial update possible?

The problem with this solution is that this is a open souurce repository that i dont have commit access to. The source is a conversion program that converts from several SCM systems and some of them are irrelevant to us, and generates compile errors because we dont have the libs nescessary to compile. Removing these directories makes it all work, but we need to do that after everey update of the source.

If you want those directories to be empty, then you can "svn switch"
those directories to an empty directory you create in your repository for just this purpose.

svn mkdir $REPO/empty -m "making empty directory"
cd your-working-copy
svn switch some-dir $REPO/empty
