Setting ups some bug tracking with Redmine and svn. We have one app which has a collection of smaller apps within that are stored in different svn repos, so we have svn: externals controlling the group of them into one checkout. This also allows us to tie the main svn checkout within Redmine.

The thing is that the history reported to Redmine seems to only be the parent repository and does not include any of the svn:externals.

Looking to see if anyone knows of a way we can have Redmine see the history on all of the svn:externals as well.

You can set a project for each separate repository, and you will have independent history for each one of them. It you make these new projects as subprojects of the main one, at least you will have a combined issue tracking. The svn log, shown in redmine will still be per repository though.

I got same advice from the redmine forums, so while it's not a perfect solution, it is what we are going with for now. – Joshua Fricke Jul 18 '11 at 22:13
