As I recall, Stefan recently declared the performance branch "done".
It's encouraging to see a few intrepid users and devs looking at the
branch and providing feedback.
Through IRC and other conversations, I've gotten the feeling that some
of the changes made on the branch might be a bit too wide-spread to
warrant whole-sale inclusion in 1.7, but several people have expressed
interested in cherry picking at least some bits back to trunk. I've
not yet done a comprehensive review of the changes on the branch, and
would appreciate any suggestions folks may have of low-hanging,
independent useful bits.
For starters, I would consider:
* the new svn_io_file_read_full2() API
* the new svn_io_file_putc() API
* the new svn_stringbuf_appendbyte() API
Note that I don't include the caching work, since I think it might be
much more far-reaching, and probably needs more review before going
The branch should also probably have a catch-up merge to prevent it
from diverging too far. I'm happy to do so, as well as fix up any
style nits which may exist on the branch. I'll do some digging to
determine the various revision ranges to make the above suggestions
merge to trunk, and post back.
