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?

Hash: SHA1

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 
that happening.
