Subject Is it possible to specify an external to the same repository?
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2019 11:26:49 GMT
Hi

In our embedded projects we have a register interface maintained by our HW
team and software that uses that register interface maintained by our SW
team.  As the interface is constantly changing, we want the software source
files to reference a fixed version of the interface.

In some projects the register interface and software are in separate
repositories. So the software simply references the register interface
using an svn external with fixed revision number.

In other projects the register interface and software are in the same
repository.  It is inconvenient to instruct all developers and users to peg
specific revisions of the register interface within their working copies.
Can we use externals in this situation, or is there another solution?

Best regards

David
