Subject Re: Sync-ing two SVN repositories
Date Mon, 20 Jul 2015 21:52:37 GMT
Sounds like you want to use an approach called "vendoring".

Effectively, you get dumps from the "vendor", and vice-versa(?). You
shouldn't care / need to care what their source looks like, or even where
it comes from. You just want to make your copy of the latest source in your
repository look like what the vendor has.

If the vendor (or you) decides to switch to some other version control
system (such as Git), it should be irrelevant to the other party.

On the other hand, what you're describing is a typical scenario for
distributed version control. So you might want to look into Git or
Mercurial. Mercurial is slightly more natural for Subversion users.
