Re: Subversion slows down with large number of files?

Please don't cross-post to the users and dev list--just pick one. In
this case, I think the users list would have been more appropriate, so
I'm trimming the cc line to that list.

Subversion has traditionally had some difficulties with single
directories containing many files. You might get better mileage using
the FSFS back end, which is optimized a little better for such
directories, if you're not doing so already.

Again, I think you might have better luck with the FSFS back end, though
I can't be sure.
