Re: How to avoid pristine copy for really big files?

One thing that I have done with success, is using 'svn co -N' in a
directory that has several large children, when I only want one or two
of the subdirs. For example, I needed just today to 'svn mv' a tree into
a deeper nesting level, but I didn't want my wc to have the many other
very large subtrees that are peer at the top level. So, I did 'svn co -N
trunk; cd trunk; svn up -N one; svn up -N other; svn mv one other/; svn
ci -m"put one below the other"'

Unfortunately, the -N option only prevents subDIRECTORIES from being
checked out, not the leaves (files). So, YMMV.
