This was new to me. I found a reference to such a feature being added to TortoiseSVN in version 1.5:


But I can't find any mention of this existing in Subversion proper. Do you have other information?

Are your users using TortoiseSVN?

Even if they are, my understanding of this feature is that it caches the properties of each revision (like log message, author, date & time). Not sure if it caches the list of files affected by each revision too. But it certainly won't cache the actual changes made to the files in those revisions; the only file contents you have available is the version currently in each working copy.
