This was also discussed on /. recently (try Threshold=2, Nested, Oldest


We regularly load 5MB to 50MB binary files (MDBs, images, AVIs) and even
some 100-500MB MDBs into SVN (svn add / svn up / svn ci) and manipulate
them with no noticable speed issues. At least it's never taken more
then a few minutes to do the check-in, or update. Our repositories
range in size from tiny (a few dozen MB) up to a few GB. Our usual
bottleneck is either the upload speed of the remote location or the T1
line going into the main office.

Our primary repository is ~1850 revs, 6.4GB on the server and creates a
18.7GB working copy with 182,000 files (including .svn/_svn folder
contents). I haven't exported it in a while, so I'm not sure exactly
how many source files there are in the repository. Most revisions files
in the FS db/revs folder are in the 1-20MB range, with the top 5
revision sizes being: 280M, 220M, 125M, 120M and 110M and tailing off
towards 10M and below (the top 100 revisions are all 14M or larger).
