I'm sorry, but I don't know the details. I know that the (pretty large) GCC
repository specifically uses a 1.3 server and strictly suggests 1.3 clients for
the (pretty picky) developers. For instane, one benefit of this setup is
smaller working copies because of smarter storage of empty properties (makes a
difference in the order of hundreds of megabytes in a GCC working copy). I know
also of a bug that was fixed in 1.3 clients, so that "svn commit" does not
erroneously stat many files for no reason, and thus it's much faster. I also
heard of specific improvements for "svn annotate" that went in in 1.3 (server,
I presume).
