My subversion-based project is based on a third-party project that is also stored in subversion, although on a separate server (to which we only have client access). We will soon need to merge the recent changes from the third-party project back into our own codebase. I am preparing to do a merge using the "vendor branch" technique from the svn book, but I was hoping that since both projects are stored in subversion, there might be a simpler way - are there any other options?

Thanks,
Steve
