I thought to post separately about the speed issue.

I think I understand it much better now. The slow part is when SVN is
checking and updating the mergeinfo, which it seems to do on all the
files affected by the range of revisions.

I read a few posts about workarounds other users have tried. Some of
them just delete mergeinfo, but doesn't that disable Merge Tracking? I
like Merge Tracking!

Other users suggested using a record only reverse merge after creating
a branch. Not sure I understand how to do that yet! Or the

I also recall reading a post from Mark Phippard saying that getting
all your mergeinfo at root helps improve performance. However the way
our project is organized, I am almost always merging from a tbranches/
3.1/skin to /trunk/skin so I am not sure how to do that.

I can wait for 1.7 and hope it helps. But if you have any suggestions
or recommendations in the meantime, I would appreciate it. Especailly
since you are batting a thousand so far :)
