Hi,

I think I can conclude my attempt to use subversion as
	   ____   __     __  _   _     ____    _   _    ____   _  __  ____
  / ___|  \ \   / / | \ | |   / ___|  | | | |  / ___| | |/ / / ___|
  \___ \   \ \ / /  |  \| |   \___ \  | | | | | |     | ' /  \___ \
   ___) |   \ V /   | |\  |    ___) | | |_| | | |___  | . \   ___) |
  |____/     \_/    |_| \_|   |____/   \___/   \____| |_|\_\ |____/

(SUBVERSION SUCKS)

First of all, checking out parrot using subversion takes at least 4 
time slonger than CVS

Doing a vendor checkin brining up parrot to latest version is a major 
pain the arse. The process alone of running svn_load_dirs takes around 
an hour, and then I have to tag it (because if you tell svn_load_dirs 
to tag things automatically it breaks). It also seems not to have 
changed some stuff when other stuff has changed! 
(http://svn.perl.org/ponie/vendor/parrot/current/config/auto/gcc.pl is 
one file that should have been updated).

Committing two files took 1 minute 22 second yesterday, a checkout is 
extremely painfully slow. I am very close to saying it is a failed 
experiment and either go to p4 or cvs for the time being.

A very angry Arthur who has spent far too much time battling an 
substandard versioning system. (which might be theoretically very nice, 
but does not scale)


ps. And off I go to try and do another merge of parrot!
