  • Adding an External Repository to an SVN Project
Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata

cd into the directory where you want to add the external project, then type:

svn propedit svn:externals .

Once the editor opens, add the name of the directory you want to add the external project into, and the URL of the project. So, if I want to add the UcsfLdapPHP repo (but without the PHP at the end), then type the following:


Once you save the file, svn will output something like:

Set new value for property 'svn:externals' on '.'

At this point, you need to commit the current directory:

svn commit -m "Added UcsfLdap as an external project." .

Finally, do the following to check out the code:

svn update

Now the external project is part of the current project.
