Re: various questions related to repo size

  So the original WS is 290Megs the one from which I commited the kernel.
  The two other WCs (local and ra_svn) after update are both 534M.
 Yes, the working copies are roughly twice as big as the original tree
 you imported into the repository. That's normal. Every file has a
 second cached pristine copy within .svn/text-base/, so that svn can
 perform many disconnected operations.

Just to make sure we're talking about the same thing.
The 2 WC-s are twice as big as the first WC and not the kernel tree itself.

So let's say I have a clean tree A.
Copy that to WC1 and commit from there.Now the tree A will have additional .svn metadata
which will increase it's size. So size (A in WC1) size (pristine A) although comparable.
Updated WC2 will have size (A in WC2) about 2 * size (A in WC1) ?Shouldn't they have the same kind of meta info?

So I was asking why the WC's are different size .I can understand that a WC is bigger than a non revision controlled tree.

 We plan to automate it. IIRC, the next version of Berkeley DB will
 automate it for us.

Ok thanks.
