Re: tcp/ip compression

thanks for the fast reply... i guess what i meant was tcp/ip compression in
the sense that cvs uses it. (basically the -z # option). it sounds like
svn will be just as capable.

another question, are you still planning on implementing the security
features outlined in the design doc?

thanks again.

By authorization, we mean answering the question:

  "Is user X allowed to perform action Y on data Z?"

The Subversion filesystem provides a single interface for answering this
