Re: Optional text base design discussion?

Another option would be to locally store a text-base cache of some sort
outside the actual working copies. This cache could be shared between
multiple working copies of the same project tree. The text base cache
itself could potentially use some kind of delta storage model to provide
multiple cached revisions of files. That way not just svn diff and svn
status could be local, but potentially diffing between trunk and a branch
that are both in cache could be. The cache can be as sparse or as filled as
a user likes, with the ultimate cache being a mirror of the entire
repository, making every operation disconnected.
