Do you mean editing the CVSROOT/modules file in the Emacs CVS repository?
I don't think that you can specify a different repository as a source

There is also a danger that you won't get appropriate changelog messages in
one or the other repositories.  Currently the URL library keeps all of the
ChangeLog entries in .../url/ChangeLog (instead of having a separate one in
lisp, texi, etc).  If someone makes an edit in Emacs' version of the
repository, the changelog will end up going in ../ChangeLog, etc.  Is this
a big deal?  Should I move the lisp-related changelog entries into

Ceterum censeo vi esse delendam
