Re: [Subclipse-dev] subclipse 1.7: why is it then now merge->block revision seems to need to download the whole revision?

ahh ok then that's what i am seeing now.
A bit annoying because many times when i do block version it is
because that was a big binary dump (an eclipse target or plugins that
we compile against) on a branch that i don't need on trunk. (or
another branch)
But i was correct in seeing that it now takes way more time to do it
with those kind of commits.
I can live with it, (just need to be sure that i am at home or at a
place with a fast Internet connection :) )

The other new feature "Reduced subtree mergeinfo changes" is paying
back the lost time big time..
I still have a few co workers that sometimes do merge on file only,
instead of root. Even after i told them quite a few times how to do
so how many times i also have deleted the svn:merge property on
specific files or dirs.... and committed that with a merge from my
self, i lost count..
But i guess that should be all over now!
