Re: Re: Using svn to sync to revision mp3 music collection (binary) result is double the storage

There's no way to turn off pristine copies, at least not yet. You
should consider cvs actually. It's advantage in this situation is that
it doesn't use pristine copies. It can also be tunelled over ssh
easily. It doesn't handle binary files like subversion, but in this
case it would be good enough, since binary diffs would be worthless on
mp3s anyway. Plus there are a million cvs clients for every platform
so it's easy enough to sync. Just remember to add files with the
binary option (-kb if I remember correctly).
