svnpubsub does not seem to either detect or apply changes related to svn:externals. we have this problem with the ant web site which has the manual as an external see [INFRA-6228|https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6228] The production version of the ant web site is at this URL : https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/ant/site/ant/production/ it contains a manual external which does not update properly. I notice in [svnwcsup.py|http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/tools/server- side/svnpubsub/svnwcsub.py] that there is an argument --ignore-externals for svn switch. Is this argument preventing the proper checkout of the externals ? Could it be removed ?
