its just a shame that we've had so much push-back from the svn
developer community
on the issue of performance (do i need to go and dig up that thread
Hyrum?) and now
when someone identifies a root cause and a possible fix it gets pushed
back another
6 months.

performance is the MAIN issue with Subversion, with large wc's
performance
is just horrible.. the Perforce folks look at our performance and
laugh, there are
examples of this all over this list..

it seems a little arrogant of the developers to ignore this issue,
don't user
concerns count for anything?

Collabnet are paying the salaries of a number of people on the dev
list, aren't
they concerned that Atlassian are kicking their butts because of this
Subversion
performance issue?

Am I alone here? Hello?
