Unfortunately, I have my doubts about that. I sometimes check the other
svn client projects and their commits because I hope to get new ideas
for features. But none of the projects I visit have even started
adjusting for svn 1.7 yet. I doubt that they will be able to achieve all
the necessary changes in time if they wait for the 1.7.x branch of the
svn project :(

Understood (and figured the answer would be no). Thanks for the good stuff in 1.7, looking forward to it and hoping other popular clients release 1.7 upgrades around the same time.

Sorry, that's not going to happen. The 1.6.x branch is the stable
branch, only important bug fixes go there. Non-important bug fixes or
even new features will never appear there.

Any chance some of these additions are incorporated into 1.6.x? I have too many dependencies on other clients (slik, anhk) to upgrade my working copy format. :(

That is extremely nice. Yet another reason to look forward to 1.7. Can
that be used to prune a working copy back down, getting rid of
folders/files that we no longer want locally?

We make heavy use of sparse checkouts and while the core users were able
to maintain their sparse working copies, the UI was never that
intuitive. Such as using "Update item to revision" dialog in order to
prune a folder back out of the working copy. It wasn't worth
complaining about at the time because we were just so glad that sparse
checkouts were possible in the first place.

Holy crap! Many kudos and thank you's. I need to check this page before my next feature request post.

Is all of this built into the latest nightly build?

Feature request: Checkout/update dialog to choose update depth for several subdirectories at once

Message I typically go through this process when I'm checking out our code where I start at the top level, get immediate children, drill down thru a subset of those directories, get immediate children, then eventually get the trunk and a couple of other release branches recursively.

It's not a big deal, just a bit tedious, and I could script this for my particular situation.

But, how about if a dialog presented a tree view of the current repository, which a checkbox beside each folder. The checkbox would indicate that I wanted to set the update depth for that folder recursively. No checkbox would indicate to exclude that folder.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Glenn
