The "how to verify and fix broken links?" thread brought up a question
I've always wondered about....

Why does osc not-exactly-duplicate the functionality of svn, instead
of just letting the user use svn directly?

In other words:

- Use svn for all checkout, diff, commit, merge, etc. operations

svn has no functionlity for source links for example. So all the derived
versions would not be possible and manual work would be always needed,
not only when conflicting changes exist.

What do you mean by source links functionality? Clearly svn can't do
"osc up -e"... so that particular functionality would have to remain
part of osc.. But wouldn't it still be possible to use svn for the
stuff svn can do?

Apologies if I'm missing something...

It would make sense to use svn to handle the conflicts, if this modular enough
in svn. But it does not make sense to introduce a protocoll wrapper or
something alike.
