[pypy-dev] checking out PyPy changed

hello again,

just a short but important info.  The berlin sprint hacks resulted in 
a few external packages we are using now (sometimes slightly adapted for
our evil purposes). This means that you absolutely need to
checkout using this url:


and NOT .../src/pypy which wouldn't give you the external packages
that PyPy currently depends on.  These packages are bound into the 
pypy-project via the notion of 'svn:externals'.  this is a property 
you can stick to a subversion-controled directory. When doing 'svn up' 
or 'svn co' on such a directory the external items will be fetched 
and integrated into your working-copy. Here is the current list of 
packages we use:

    Pyrex       slightly hacked version of Pyrex-0.8.2
    Plex        the Lexer that Pyrex uses 
    vpath       a package that helps with filename/file-manipulation

Soon there will also be an external to a subtree of Jonathan D. Riehls 
Python-Parser (which is part of Basil now living in 
http://codespeak.net/svn/basil).  This will allow us to do the complete 
tokenize/parser/compile cycle with plain python packages.
