It turned out that not updating which is much slower (however I can't
really comment on the exact numbers now), but the propgets.
To understand this: as I've mentioned, I store operating system images
in svn, so I have to reproduce owner and permission information too.
Therefore I store them in svn properties and re-create them as needed on

I use pysvn for this and basically the code looks like this (in python):
def update_perms():
     for path in propchg:
         proplist = svn.propget('file:permissions', path)
         if not os.path.islink(path) and proplist.has_key(path):
             set_perms(path, proplist[path])

The svn update collects the changed entries (propchg) and update_perms
iterates on them and gets their file:permissions property and sets it in
the file system.

And this is what takes ages (literally), compared to 1.6.
Any ideas about what could be done in this topic?

I will try to make more specific numbers if needed.
