Re: subversion filesystem

Hi,

This would probably require that there are actually -two-
databases: a local database that acts like a journaling
filesystem and remembers all file renames deletions props etc.,
and the central database on the server.
A 'commit' would then sync/merge/transmit the local
database+data with the database on the server.

on the long run, what we all want could be the combination
of a journaling filesystem with a version control backing store,
and a feature to synchronize such a -local- database with
the central server database. extending this with transfer
methods borrowed from 'rsync' could maybe produce the
' most wanted (programmers-) filesystem ' :-)

in the meantime, 'standard filesystem' based revision control is
probably 'just another workaround before we get the real thing'.

:-)
