The repository is really new ... I think we're up to a whoppin' 29

Do you suggest we move to FSFS?

I have seen 18 minute logs using Apache and FSFS for a single file with
somewhere on the order of 4500 revisions. How many revisions does this
file have?


Speaking of which, I know Subversion is doing a lot of work for such
files but perhaps someone on the dev team could look at the performance
of the log operation a little more? I get a lot of flack at work from
some CVS old-timers about this issue. :-)


BTW, if you don't need all of the log and you can upgrade to 1.3.x, the
"--limit=N" option to svn log is a lifesaver.

Any ideas?
