Re: large db/revs files

Thanks for everyone’s replies.

Took me a couple days to review the links everyone sent.

Thorsten’s links sent me to several of your posts, Mark -- thanks. Based
on your feedback it appears the new release of svn within a month or so
should resolve the problem. It appears the best solution is to wait until

But, I did want to follow-up on the questions Thorsten & Olli had. Here is
an example of our directory structure:


The tags are at the same directory level, which supports the inclination
you had, Thorsten. I wasn’t aware that tagging a directory replicates the
complete directory structure in db/res, which contains the largest files in
our repo. The other directories are reasonable. The source of the largest
db/rev repo, which has 141,573 revisions, is 780K.

If I understand the skip-delta cost, which I may not completely, it sounds
like each tagged release based on the trunk will occupy more space as it is
farther away from the trunk revision number?
