Re: Submit large bunch of files over a slow ad unstable network

Isnt there any retry ability on SVN? Cause the network might be slow or
unreliable, but most of the time, it worked. I could connect my remote
server with SSH and work for long time.

Since the nature of SVN is transaction based, it will be great if it could
cache the uploaded stuff somewhere on server, push the data up ( with
retries ), then submit in transaction over there. Otherwise, it is too easy
to break a big transaction in case like mine.
