Then I'm user number 2! No, really, kdesvn-build works fine and that's
exactly why I'm trying to discourage people from inventing their own
solutions. Either the tools provide what we need, or they don't and we
just use kdesvn-build or MJansen's.

Maybe we should reconsider git. Maybe KDE is too big for the way git
works now, and we should wait until 'git' has something like 'svn
externals'. And I'm saying this as someone who lead the move from svn
to git at work, and who is constantly bugged by people asking for
something more like svn externals because git submodules are a PITA.
