Hi All,

Is it possible to set depth on externals? Can I do this via a file list?
Like this:
--depth files prod http://svn-server/repo/trunk/prod
--depth infinity prod/bin http://svn-server/repo/trunk/prod/bin
--depth infinity prod/client-specific http://svn-server/repo/trunk/prod/client-specific

My first few attempts at doing this don't look promising, and I'm not seeing any examples online that use depth control with externals.

My situation is this:
We have a large complicated set of files that we do not want to edit. There are a few random directories that we will be adding files to and modifying. I want to keep the large mass of files separate from the few files we will be working on.

 My thought is to create a skeletal tree that mimics the structure of the large complicated tree - then use externals to map the large content into the skeletal structure during a checkout. The problem is that both repos will contain similar directory structures which I expect to cause name conflicts at points where the data tree structures intersect. If I can use depth control options then I can avoid the conflicts caused by directories with matching names.

Or better yet - if externals mapping can handle blending together data tree structures with matching directory names then I can just throw it all together without the depth control.
