RE: Re: "svn status" performance

Unfortunately, I don't experience this behavior on Windows XP.

My steps:
 * check out a fresh working copy
 * run "svn status"

Monitoring the system calls reveals that it reads ALL working copy files and all base files.

I use this version:
svn, version 1.1.3 (r12730)

And that is exactly the algorithm SVN utilizes (except it's using MD5
instead of SHA1). If Subversion reads all files, then your timestamps
might be off. There's an operation you can do that will correct the
timestamps, but I can't remember the command to use.
