If you're using the filesystem repository format (not Berkley DB,) you
can see the size of the deltas.
 
Create a test repository and checkin several revisions of the access
database.
Then, on the server, cd to /my/repositories/test_repos/db/revs
Run ls -al (or dir). Each file listing is a revision/delta.
 
'svnadmin dump' may or may not also provide the revision size, but I'm
not sure.

        Hi
        
        How efficient is Subversion when versioning Access databases ? A
typically database will in my case be 10 - 30 MB and the users will only
change a few rows between each version. Now, will the delta be as
efficient in size etc. as on text files in this case ?
        
        I know that the Subversion web site says that it is as efficient
on binary files as on text files, but does anyone have really hands on
experience with access databases ??
