Versioned Modules

Unlike CVS, a Subversion working copy is aware that it has checked out a module. That means if somebody changes the definition of a module (e.g., adds or removes components), 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 Externals Definitions.
