Okay, it's just important. I don't think the decentralised
development model is necessarily the best model for Debian.

Right; basically svn:externals says: this directory is another
repository to be checked out from here. It makes for some really
nice features, like being able to tie together different programs at
different revisions into a bundle. Plone and Zope use this
extensively. I can't live without it any more.

Oh, and another pro for SVN: Joey Hess uses SVN for everything, and
so far he's not found anything better. To me, this was reason enough
to stop my search and get on with it, using SVN.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
