Why not set up your projects so they only include the needed shared folders using externals?

I am talking about checking out a single project, however the "projects" all use the same
folders, like shared folders.  So when you do a get on the top level, you get all the files
for every project rather than just the files for the project of interest

Let me get this straight, you're not talking about checking out a single project vs. the whole
tree. You're talking about checking out a project, but not the externals directories? You
can take a look at several things: * There's an --ignore-externals flag when you do a checkout.
This prevents any externals directory from being checked out. * Take a look at the --depth
switch. You can checkout a directory, without checking out the sub-directories, then just
update the subdirectories you want. (Note: There's a --set-depth flag on the update command
to override the setting on the checkout command. (See http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.5.html#sparse-checkouts
for more information on the depth switch.) On Tue, Mar 2, 2010 at 1:07 PM, Paul Decker wrote:
