SVN Externals for data repository
05-15-2007, 10:24 AM,
How to link an external repo....
... I'd hate to post something that is already known, but this seems to be taking a while, and when I tried to checkout for the first time, I didn't get data and I didn't know why, and this thread is way at the bottom of the front page, and I almost didn't see it Smile

Anyways, the solution is an easy one:

cd vdrift
svn propset svn:externals \
  "data" .

I hope this can be applied soon to help fellow newbies like me Smile

Hi, thanks for reminding me to fix this, and figuring it out for me too...I know it's in the SVN book but haven't looked yet, is there a way to make this automatic inside the repository? I'm not sure if I want to do that though because that would take away the user's choice to download all the data or just a little, which they have now that the two are split up.

Either way this needs to get added to the wiki...if someone wants to work on that, it would be awesome, I haven't had a lot of time the last few weeks because I've been working 9-5 and graduating (family, ceremony, parties, etc.). I hate it when the school year ends, but I stay's time to do summer stuff now... :evil:

edit: oh yeah, I split this into its own thread because it deserves it, and the other thread had kinda derailed anyway, and I didn't want this important stuff to be buried in another thread.

Yeah that command does automate it for all the users of the repository. I haven't done it 'cause I haven't commit access... Smile Though, if you want to leave that out i can add the step to check out the data directory to the build instructions in the wiki instead.
