Re: project folder too large

From: Josh Gilkerson <jwg_at_google.com>

.svn has a copy of the files as they were checked out from the
repository. This is needed because subversion does not trust
timestamps to determine what has changed.

I don't know of a way you could get around this if you really need to
check out the entire repository to build. It might save some space if
you only check out the things you are changin and then using export to
try to build. Export does not keep the pristine copies, but you won't
be able to commit changes made to export. However, this would
probably be slow to do the checkouts and not very handy.

Is 2 GB really a burden?
