RE: admin driven deltification

Hi,

deltification from cron-job --> how does the cron-job select the repository? For each repository created an entry in crontab?
A central file somewhere listing all created repositories? (This re-opens an earlier discussion about svn not being able to keep a centralized store of all repositories on a machine, forgot the subject of the thread(s).)

So although a cron-job sounds like a good idea, I think that in practice it's not something that can be done automatically by the installer.

Perhaps an appropriate post-commit-hook-program can be installed into the repository *by default* when a new repos. is created? With a different one for windows and for unix?
(Makes it harder to move the repos from one platform to the other, but well I don't think you can just move a repos from unix to windows anyways without doing dump/reload...)

regards,

--Tim

karl, you wrote, that space aware admins should set a deltification in the post-commit hook. does
this mean:
- the user gets the response as late as up to know?
- if you do not run it in post-commit
  does it slow down "svn up" of other users,
  or is it just a server space issue?

would it make sense to run deltification by a cron job (and remove it from post-commit), and doing
packaging for a specific os should include in providing and registering such a job by default?

another thing i am anclear of:
is looking for objects which need to be deltified performance relevant? up to know you exaclty
know the object, you "just" need to do the deltification.
