RE: Re: Polling revision numbers...

I guess a post-commit hook or Push notification could be used to but it's not really what I'm looking for. I wanted a way to retrieve just the revision numbers of my current directory and the trunk so that I could trigger the update if they are different. I wanted to avoid the issue of a user committing a new license and a developer committing a change right during the upload/commit (sort of a race condition).

Really I just want a command-line way of determining if the portal's directory needs an update or some automated way that will not affect the portal user's process so everything feels seamless. Any human interaction once the portal is setup is not really wanted.

>Yes, all commands have a (sometimes small) resource demand, andpolling frequently is generally not a good solution.

Many services (especially bidirectional connections) are constantly polling but my question mainly pertains to if the Update command when there is no update needed consumes too much resources for this to be useful.

(also thank you for the reply)
