As far as I know, the size on disk of the repository on the server
isn't supposed to matter so much. What matters is the size of the
working copy, or more particularly how many directories are in the
working copy. This is why it's a useful speed-enhancing practice to
check out only the part of the repository you're interested in, to
update only the part of the working copy you're interested in, and to
check in only the part of the working copy you're working in. That
way Subversion doesn't have to waste time charting lots of
directories if you already know there aren't any changes in them.
