RE: subversion and proxy cache

From: Mark <mark_at_msdhub.com>

Subversion (in Apache via mod_dav_svn) uses a protocol called DELTAV which
is a superset of WEBDAV which is a superset of HTTP (superset being a loose
term here).

Due to the nature of these protocols, a proxy would have to know specific
implementation details, not just cache arbitrary requests. To my knowledge,
there's no cache that can do that.

Subversion (via svnserve) uses a custom protocol. There is no caching proxy
for this.

Due to the nature of what Subversion (and other VCS) is, only a read-only
repository could be cached safely anyway.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Mark

Subject: subversion and proxy cache

Hello,
 
I want to use subversion on multiple sites. We have low network bandwidth,
so i want to setup a proxy to cache svn request.
Is svn designed to be cached with a proxy ? What proxy would you suggest ?

Thanks,

  Ronan
