In this message Thor Lancelot Simon asked following:
   I will repeat my question of some months ago: can anyone actually
   give an example of a repository with anywhere near as many files
   and revisions as ours, with a couple of hundred active developers
   who semi-regularly check in, and well over 100 simultaneous
   checkouts at peak periods, that is managed by Subversion?

We have had a statistic pages about "big" repositories in the past
(www/svn-repositories(2).html), but they have gone with r9756 as

What do you think, would it make sense to start collecting something
similar, but this time the page would be devoted only for big

The relevant information would be at least the size, top revision at
the moment, average commits per day, average read/write users per day,
hardware used (CPU/RAM/IO), OS, access methods, used backend
(BDB/FSFS) and the rest of the old questions. The old questions are at
the end of this email. For example, I would like to know these facts
of the repository of Apache Software Foundation
<http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/>, if this information is public.

I think these kind of hard facts would be valuable for those who plan
or think switching, as addition to our 'Testimonials' page.

BR, Jani

Old questions from www/svn-repositories2.html:

1. Your name
2. Your email if you don't mind us putting that on the page
3. Whether your repository is public or private
4. A hyperlink to repository if it's public
5. Size of the repository in MB (not your working copy)
6. Approximate date you created the repository
7. Current revision number of HEAD
8. Number of users who use the repository
9. Platform/OS that server is running on
10. Platform/OS that client(s) are using
11. What you are keeping in your Subversion repository
    (e.g. source code, docs, digital images, Word docs, etc)
12. Any other info you think is relevant
