RE: svn+ssh performance with tortoise

We've noticed that as the tree structure increases, trying to commit changes
at the root level of a project is considerably much longer than trying to
commit it at a per user folder. I believe it's due to recursion which slows
down the commit process.

So instead, I just commit the folders as needed, and not doing it at the
root folder.

Our experience is that subversion runs faster from a linux client than a 
windows client (tortoise ro command line svn).
The windows clients do seem to have a stall time before they get going, 
which we cannot account for.
