Re: automatic deployment or websites

My concern with performance is not due to subversion its self. The
server is currently hosting part of a high traffic website streaming
audio and video. The owners want to move the remainder of the site
(all pages) to the same server, I have warned them that I don't think
this is a good idea as I am not sure if the server will cope too well.

This is why I want to keep subversion stress on the server to a
minimum. When you perform a subversion update and there have been no
changes I guess all subversion does it check the version number of
the repos against the working copy version number? Would this not be
about the same checking a text file?

  I guess I was thinking it would check all the files for some
reason. Can someone confirm this?
