Re: post-commit help please

Yeah, the developers were tired of manually copying files into the
webroot every time they wanted to test their changes. I'm sure there is
a way to have a script run so that it exports a clean (without _svn
folders) copy to the webroot but that's beyond my understanding of
subversion at this time.

I think it's preferred to see the script end so that the developers know
when to start testing in the browser, meaning all the files finished

One side affect we haven't gotten around yet, is IIS recycles it's
process after a commit. This sucks because testing an app already in
session kills the web session and you have to start over with your
testing from the login. We were sure to exclude the "bin" folder so I'm
not sure what it recycles. I thought maybe the global.aspx page was
being touched but if an svn update really only touches the files that
were changed this shouldn't be it. Maybe I'll try excluding global.aspx
and see what happens.

On a side note, we excluded all of the extra framework library files
(files that will never be edited by us) from the repository which
significantly reduced the number of files that the repository was
versioning which sped up the post-commit from a short while to a few
seconds which is certainly usable.
