Is it possible in the VCL repository to have a reference to a remote Dojo
Subversion repository? That way VCL could be using the head of a branch of
Dojo without using trunk (with all the support issues that entails). If you
did an svn checkout you'd get Dojo, but the VCL team wouldn't have to keep
parallel with the Dojo repository.
Keeping up with the Dojo API is something that has to be done by developers to
make sure the web interface always functions, but keeping up with it at the
Subversion level within the VCL repo doesn't seem like a good idea.

Subject: copy of dojo in the repo?
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Recently, the idea of maintaining a copy of the Dojo Toolkit in the subversion
repository has been brought up. I've avoided maintaining dojo in subversion
both to keep the repo a little cleaner and to avoid the problem of ending up
with an old copy in there that never gets updated. However, the decision to
have it in the repo is really up to the community - not just up to me. Would
others prefer for it to be there? Not having it there requires the extra step
of downloading it from another location and installing it if you want to try to
install VCL from subversion. This only takes a few minutes, but it is still a
few extra steps.
Additionally, installing VCL from subversion may or may not work, depending on
the state of development. We don't typically check in things that are
unfinished, causing trunk to be broken, but there's always the possibility of
