Yeah, right, it's quite a change. I'm so used to always checkout our
common repository I tend to forget not everyone is, sorry. We
implemented the common repository from the beginning, so there never
happened a change. At work we have made a script called "build" which
takes the name(s) of the project(s) as arguments, does the checkouts and
than builds everything.

I thought of one possible disadvantage of a commons repository: Back
when we set up our common at work once a developer fixed something in
common which then broke all other projects depending on the old version.
Therefore alterations to commons now must be approved by a
representative of each project. Dunno how this should be handled here
(since here there is mostly foreign code which isn't very likely to be
changed), but you might think about it.
