Re: Regarding shallow checkouts

Well, my scenario is simple: I have a repository that contains a folder branches and in that folder is a branch for every version that is deployed. Deployment is done every second week, since 2007. So that's a lot of branches. I use shallow checkout to check out the branches folder and all of its immediate children which gives me a list of existing branches. If I need to work on one of those, I can pull it easily with svn up --set-depth=infinity.

That's about all.
