RE: [TSVN] Too much recursion going on in TSVN?

I am wondering if maybe tortoise is addressing the problem from the wrong

There are several scenarios that might cause the status of a subtree to
change (i.e., the status of an entity inside the tree):
File changes as a result of an update, an operation within Tortoise and an
operation outside of Tortoise, e.g., inside visual studio - directly or
Then there's the issue of svn:properties changing.

I do not know how the properties are implemented, but the NTFS file system
will allow tortoise to be aware of any changes in the .svn directories via
reparse points. This means that any change to any of the folders can be
caught be toirtoise an propagated up the folder heirarchy without the need
to recursively scan the folder heirarchy.

The reason this will work is that once a change is detected there is no need
to access the remote repository but only the local base, which remains
constant between updates...

In esseence this means that Tortoise will switch to Push rather than Pull...
