Note that the 2GB limit would then in Subversion's case apply also to revision files, meaning if you are affected by this limit, you cannot commit more than 2GB of combined data in a single revision, no matter how many files are affected by the revision.

Note also that, independent of any OS limitation, certain versions of APR (< 1.0) have this 2GB limit as well. Build your Subversion (and Apache, if you use it) against APR >= 1.2 instead.

Note finally that the limit is 2GB (2 gigabytes), not 2Gb (2 gigabits).
