I have a problem on how to handle svn:externals in case of repository branching.
Let suppose I would like to have a repository structure like this:
- repository root
My needs can be summarized as follows:
1) in trunk the svn:externals definitions should *always* point the HEAD versions of the external
2) in any tag versioned svn:externals definitions have to be set: I have just discovered svncopy.pl, so this is
- now the challenge: if I define a branch (i.e. ourDev_20090101), I would like that some/all svn:externals
Vendor branches may represent a solution, but they make more sense if you stick your whole
I am wondering it there exists a smarter solution... Do you know one?
