Subject [jira] Commented: (DIR-102) Add svn:externals to directory
Date Mon, 07 Feb 2005 23:28:12 GMT

Stephane Bailliez commented on DIR-102:

Fair enough, but it looks like you might be going a bit far into decoupling things and thus
creating more complexity than necessary in the structure.

It's nearly like instead of having java 'packages' you have been creating sub-modules with
a different lifecycle.

I'm not sure there will be such a different lifecycle between sub-modules, especially as there
are no resources to do backward compatibility testing and mixing. (there is no QA so it's
always HEAD)

Therefore you will nearly always tag each trunk at the same time...which is exactly the same
has having all under the same trunk, except that it is much more might even
get most of them into the main source tree :)

> It is a bit weird to checkout 'directory' due to the multiplicity of subprojects which
each has its own lifecycle (ie branches and tags).
> Maybe it would be helpful to use the extremely poorly documented svn:externals option
so that the trunk checks out the trunks of each subproject and not the whole trunk + branches
+ tags
> Another option would probably be to move all submodules in the trunk if they don't such
have a different lifecycle. TBC.
