Subject RE: Using the script tag, wanting to return a value
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2008 03:48:32 GMT
I am currently using svnant with javasvn and everything works great, it is just very sloooooow.
 Much slower than command line svn or SmartSVN.  I was thinking about trying svnkit as a replacement
for javasvn.  Would it be any faster?

Have you tried the svn ant task from subclipse?

The documentation appears to be out of date since it doesn't mention
that the "info" command is supported, yet there is a command in the code
base for it.  The documentation also doesn't say it can use svnkit, but
that capability was added over a year ago.
