RE: svn log "hangs"

Well that explains why it is *so* slow. The initial revision is from we
imported the repository and has thousands of files in the revision. Is
there a way to "kill" a revision? If I could somehow get rid of
that initial revision things might not be so bad...

However, I still don't understand why it has to check every file in the
revision. I understand why would would want to if your doing a "svn log
-v" which also reports all the files of each revision. But if your not
using the -v option then only information about that file is returned.
So why does it need to verify the paths for all the other files?

Sure, but if each of those revisions changed 300 files, then apache
needs to verify the readability of 2700 paths!

It's not the one file that's being re-checked. It's *every changed
path* in *every revision* returned by 'svn log' that's being checked for
