Re: Subversion, decentralized version control, and the future.

Would good caching give you 90% of the distributed speed win with 10%
of the effort?

DAV/serf is supposed to allow caching of reads using available apache
modules. Has anyone implemented this? How do you handle the
authentication issues (if not everything is readable by everybody)?

If this works, you could cache at the LAN level and get faster
checkout, history, blame, etc without storing the whole (potentially
large) repository.

P.S. apologies to egoots for taking the post in exactly the opposite
direction of his point.
