Is "svn:external" managed ?

Postby kastor » Fri Jun 29, 2007 9:50 am


Is it possible to access to the content of external link with SVNWebClient ?

(a directory with the property svn:external set)

Thanks in advance

well, actually I think that svn:external should be transparent to the SVNClient (like SVNWebClient). So if you set "externals" you'll see resources in corresponding folders, may download them, etc.
Note: actually 'svn:externals' was described as very weakly supported from SVN and earlier it was not recommended to use them. Don't know actual stand today.
