If you are using http or https, there are significant latency issues
associated with the Subversion protocol, due in part to the number of
roundtrips made to the server for each connection. Subversion 1.7
introduces a new version of the protocol which removes most of the
latencies, and should speed things up significantly.

answered therein". Both are reasonable requests, though could potentially
have been framed better. You are must more likely to get assistance if you
demonstrate you have done your own research prior to asking questions here.
