External repositories in subversion

Edit the svn:externals property for the directory where the external stuff will go into
svn propedit svn:externals .


Add a line for each external entry you want to have:
local/path http://external/repo
local/path2 -r### http://external/repo


Example for me adding jokey's virtualbox ebuilds:

svn pe svn:externals /var/repos/chutz/app-emulation


virtualbox http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/dev/jokey/trunk/app-emulation/virtualbox
virtualbox-additions http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/dev/jokey/trunk/app-emulation/virtualbox-additions
virtualbox-bin http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/dev/jokey/trunk/app-emulation/virtualbox-bin
virtualbox-guest-additions http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/dev/jokey/trunk/app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions
virtualbox-modules http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/dev/jokey/trunk/app-emulation/virtualbox-modules
