We have used externals on a couple of projects where they have been very useful. They have not obscured anything as all svn commands will work on them.

More noob questions about svn...

1. Is using externals a good idea?

I've been told that it's generally a bad idea, and it feels to me like a bad idea, since it obfuscates what's going on in the repo. Is it often done for professional projects?

2. Is there a means of keeping part of a file private? eg

My password is xxxxxx

where on my machine, the x's are replaced by some alphanumeric sequence, but someone who checks out the repo will not get the complete file.

TIA,

Richard
