Subject STATUS file and CVSup: Horrible
Date Thu, 11 Jun 1998 15:25:23 GMT

The apache-1.3/STATUS file has a lot of revisions and these seem to be the
reason why the syncing via CVSup is such horrible slow in the last weeks.
Actually it gets slower and slower. Currently when I update via CVSup I have
to wait up to 4(!) minutes for the Fixup of STATUS,v:

Here it gets slower and slower while my router says CVSup does a lot of IP
traffic. So my questions are:

1. I'm the only one using CVSup or at least the only one
   who gets bothered by this increasing delay?

2. Can we do something to decrease this delay?

My idea is perhaps to remove some old revisions from the STATUS file or even
safe the current STATUS,v and add a fresh one.
