I have implemented that feature, and I was wondering if it has any chance of making it into the trunk directory for svn. It currently has performance issues, and I don't want to spend a lot of time optimizing the code if it's never going to be incorporated into the main development line.

Maybe by using checksums instead of file size or, more ambitiously, I was thinking something like a rsync subcommand that allows a person to synchronize an unversioned folder with an svn repository.

You recall that there was already a discussion in April when you initially suggested this feature?


There were objections by myself and others that what you proposed was already fairly easily accomplished using Subversion's existing commands, and you were going to inquire with your client as to why those existing methods weren't suitable.
