In fairness, he did not say how he measured the times. If he based it on
the output of the SVN Console view, I think that is a fairly fair
comparison and I would not expect Subclipse to be that far off from the
command line. It will definitely be slower as there is stuff done for
every file as it is checked out, but most of what you talk about does not
happen until after the Checkout is finished.
I would also expect the time difference to be a lot greater if you were
checking out 10MB across 1000 files, then if it was 10MB across 20 files.
This is because something happens for each file as the notification is
Scanned for SoftLanding Systems, Inc. and SoftLanding Europe Plc by IBM Email Security Management Services powered by MessageLabs.
