Re: When to merge sparse-directories branch to trunk?

Just out of curiosity have you looked at how svk solves this?

With svk the -N option is sticky, meaning update won't grab files or folders
that are missing, instead it marks them with a '!'. You have to svk revert
-R to actually get a directory back. (or without the -R for files). This
makes spare checkouts work quite well, and I believe svn could be made to
work the same way without the need for as much new code as is currently in
this branch.
