Thanks for the replay.
I did something a little bit different. Basically, I need some files from
dir2/other1_dir to be under a certain directory that is under dir1 and some
other files from dirs/other2_dir to be under another directory that is under
What I did was:
test1  -d dir1/another1_dir  dir2/other1_dir  file1  file2...
test2  -d dir1/another2_dir  dir2/other2_dir  file3  file4...
test  test  &test1  &test2

The checkout output looked very good but I couldn't find files 1-4 under
dir1 :-(

What I did wrong?
