[wp-hackers] OT: Checkout SVN into another?

Thanks, just tried it in Putty and I can add the directories, but as
mentioned it doesn't allow the inclusion of individual files and that's what
I need. :S

The directory is quite important because the BuddyPress plugins need to be
in the mu-plugins directory.

If there isn't a more elegant solution I might just have to write a bash
script to delete the contents of the mu-plugins folder, checkout the
BuddyPress repo into a completely different directory and then move the
files into the mu-plugins directory. It'll be annoying if I want to have
other stuff in the mu-plugins folder though...
