Re: Large Commits Fail

Thanks for the information, Erik. How are Subversion commits
executed? One large XML file or file-by-file? I'm getting the error
again while trying to commit a large merge and I'd really like to keep
the merge recorded in a single commit. If the commit is file-by-file
then it doesn't seem like this would really be the problem (but I also
don't know what the XML format looks like).

Thanks again. I'd like to know as much as possible before trying this
over and over again and risking the database itself.
