I'm in a situation where I have many multiple software repos. Some in git and some in svn. To build or work on a given project, I need to checkout or clone those various repos together in a working directory. Other than custom scripts, are there tools available that are VCS agnostic that could help with this task? I've been trying all sorts of search terms, but invariably end up with git submodules or git-repo.

@cstanhope I thought I remembered using such a thing, but it turned out that not only was the thing I was thinking of not remotely what you want, but also it had its final release in 2010 and nobody's working on it any more. (It was https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SVK if you're curious.)
@jamey @cstanhope SVK was very cool to work with. I used it a lot in a few uni group projects in the mid-00s, until bzr turned out to be the Best Subversion Client Ever, that could achieve the same things and more, while avoiding some pretty clumsy aspects of SVK.
