Ooops !
My fault, of course checkout ...

No I don't think so.
I thought you would know. According to my knowledge we can remove it.

I agree.

Well, we for sure can increase the progress bar.
The question I was not able to asnwer was, what is "moderately accurate".
We know when a resource was checked-out, but we do not know how many
resources there are ...

It seems that the existing progress works for two things:
- when you're checking out several resources within one command
- to show progress of each checkout in the sense of it's 3 phases -
scrubProject 9%, checkout 82%, refreshProject 9%.

I don't have a sound proposal here.

If we can have some reasonable solutions it would be fine, because this
"steady progressbar" issue is also related
to many other operations like synchronize/update/switch etc ...
