RFE: support for progress estimates during initial checkout

I'd like to get some progress feedback or time

estimates at initial checkout of a subversion tree.

I asked on the TortoiseSVN list, and they said

the lack of this reflects the lack in the

subversion library.

It seems to me that there might be two possible

ways to accomplish this.

#1) Ask up front for the total size of the

tree being requested, and then client can

calculate progress (in #bytes and #files)

as it proceeds).

I couldn't figure out where the API docs

are, while I was googling for "svn_client_checkout".

It has lots of hits, but none of the first 40 or

so looked like an API reference.

Oddly, this page

  http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html

doesn't seem to contain "svn_client" at

all, much less "svn_client_checkout".

Nonetheless, I can see that it provides some

sort of status feedback function - enough for

the client to use to update file counts and

do its own running calculation of the total

bytes currently on the client side I'm sure.

#2) Have the server provide byte & file

accumulated counts during the feedback

calls from "svn_client_checkout".

Cordially,

Perry

I didn't see this mentioned in the following lists

(I'm a newbie, so I'm not very sure where all to look)

Searched for "progress" on http://subversion.tigris.org/project_issues.html

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/buglist.cgi?component=subversion&issue_status=NEW&issue_status=STARTED&issue_status=REOPENED&target_milestone=1.5&target_milestone=1.5-consider

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/buglist.cgi?component=subversion&issue_status=NEW&issue_status=STARTED&issue_status=REOPENED&target_milestone=2.0

I looked through some of these

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/buglist.cgi?component=subversion&issue_status=UNCONFIRMED&issue_status=NEW&issue_status=STARTED&issue_status=REOPENED

but there are several hundred and I'm not sure what I'm looking for.
