• Versioned Modules

    Unlike CVS, a Subversion working copy is aware that it has checked out a module. That means that if somebody changes the definition of a module (e.g. adds or removes components), then a call to svn update will update the working copy appropriately, adding and removing components.

    Subversion defines modules as a list of directories within a directory property: see the section called “Externals Definitions”.
