You need an tigris.org user acount and to be an "Observer" on the
Subversion project. Then you'll be able to add comments when you're logged
in.

This is more appropriate on the users@ list, but anyway. You might have
old BDB logs that aren't needed anymore. Try
svnadmin list-unused-logs REPO_PATH
If you get anything back, you can delete those files.

svn *is* deltifying binary data.

The usual answer to this question is that you could share the files using
some other means, i.e. a networked filesystem or a web site.

As you see from the age of this issue, it isn't high priority at present.
