Re: Using APACHE_2_0_BRANCH not HEAD was Re: recent apr change?

I could be wrong, but wouldn't syncing to apache CVS involve /less/
bandwidth than downloading a complete release? You can tell CVS to use
compression and it's only sending diffs rather than the complete file.
Diffs could be larger if they remove a lot of text but I would imagine
that on average it would involve less data, no?

Not saying you're wrong or unjustified in your comment necessarily -
bandwidth use is not something I have to worry about - I'm just wondering.
