Faster SVN Status

Good day

We use SVN over a large distributed network that's normally slow and
often unreliable. It has changed our lives drastically though -
excellent product!


The files that we store in the repository have various types and most of
them remain unchanged (but it is nice having them there for initial
deployment to new clients).

The files in the repository that change regularly all have a .kb
extension, and the applications running on our clients are mostly
concerned with these files.


Is it possible to do a "svn status -verbose -show-updates" that will
only list the *.kb files (including the ones in sub-directories)? I.e.
is there a way (direct or workaround) to include a --targets switch for
a status command? Or a way to ignore files (versioned or unversioned)
when a certain filter/mask is provided?

Will this improve the speed of the command execution? (Note this will
reduce the number of files to consider by more than half)

I've tried to the following syntax c:\myfiles\*.kb, but this seems to do
a separate transaction for each file and is much slower.


Many thanks
