I (tried to) download and install from svn using the link show in the subversion page. However, none of the tags or branches seem to have the 'sapphire' directory so, of course, it doesn't work.

Am I being stupid?

Any help appreciated.

With the svn link that points to sapphire / cms / jsparty via svn:externals so you won't see those folders (for example if you go to http://svn.silverstripe.com/open/phpinstaller/trunk/ in a webbrowser) but when you check that out via svn it should download all the externals as well. You can see the externals down the bottom of http://open.silverstripe.com/browser/phpinstaller/trunk

You might want run svn propedit svn:externals . in your checked out project to see if you have the correct externals.

Ahh.... I wasn't telling the whole truth. I was checking it out using 'git svn' which presumably doesn't speak 'svn:externals'. Sorry - I've never used svn in anger and don't really get it but I assume this is some 'automagic' link to other (external) svn repositiories.

So, I guess the more honest question would be can you check out using git svn and not miss stuff.

I know that might be outside of the remit of this forum though!

Ive found the git-me-up really useful for this sort of thing, haven't used it within a ss checkout but a few other projects = - http://effectif.com/articles/easy-git-svn-for-rails. Also I have bookmarked - http://www.algorithm.com.au/blog/files/git-svn-svn-externals.php which might be useful.

Cool.. git-me-up looks like it might be the answer.

I'll give it a try and let you know how it works out.

Thanks
