RE: subversion and code peer reviews

Noticed there is another thread discussing performance issues. There was a
question mentioned there about virus checkers. Turns out svn may be
interacting badly with the virus checker software on my machine (Trend
OfficeScan). Turning off the virus checker on my machine dropped the time
down to 30 seconds. Big improvement, but still slow, especially since TSVN
can do the same thing in 15 seconds.

svn can use 3rd-party GUI diff programs too. See the --diff-cmd and
--diff3-cmd args. I'm sure TSVN allows this also.... just write a wrapper
script.

What version of TSVN? The latest release (1.1.2) is much faster at status.
