I previously inquired about adding a –skipfilesmatchingsize option to the export subcommand. I have implemented that feature, and I was wondering if it has any chance of making it into the trunk directory for svn. It currently has performance issues, and I don't want to spend a lot of time optimizing the code if it's never going to be incorporated into the main development line.
If the feature is not acceptable as described in my previous message, could it be made acceptable if it were expanded somehow to make it of more general use? Maybe by using checksums instead of file size or, more ambitiously, I was thinking something like a rsync subcommand that allows a person to synchronize an unversioned folder with an svn repository.
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
