Subject newbie subversion questions
Date Fri, 31 Dec 2010 19:00:23 GMT
Hi all,
 This is going to be a long post and actually a repost of what I asked
in Debian forum few days ago.
http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=58799 but got no answer.

This is from svn version 1.6.12 .

Hi all,
I am no programmer, just a user who sometimes downloads svn snapshots
or trunk builds and compiles them. My subversion skills are hence
extremely poor and hence need the forum expertise to know. Few
questions below :-

a. Is there a way in subversion when you are downloading some new
project progress as in megabytes downloaded etc. An excerpt so it will
make clear what I am asking :-

$ svn co https://pagesofadventur.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pagesofadventur
pagesofadventur
A    pagesofadventur/trunk
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/.classpath
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/COMPILING
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/compile.sh
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/LICENSE
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/.project
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/lib
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/lib/libopenal64.so


This is just an small FOSS game coming up which I checked out recently
and its just an excerpt of the whole svn release. What I want to know
is can something be added to the command so it gives something like
this :-

A    pagesofadventur/trunk                  ------ downloaded 5 KB
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/.classpath  ...... downloaded 15 KB
A    pagesofadventur/trunk/COMPILING ...... downloaded 25 KB

Something that will either give the total bandwidth being consumed
(total size of the directory being downloaded in real-time or the size
of the file in real-time) either of them will be good. As of right now
I don't see or know how much data is being downloaded.

a1. Also is there some sort of progress meter or something which can
be used ? Something like we get in wget ?

b. At the moment, svn info gives very sparse information. I get
something like this only :-

$ svn info
Path: .
URL: https://pagesofadventur.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pagesofadventur/trunk
Repository Root:
https://pagesofadventur.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/pagesofadventur
Repository UUID: 61f2b476-27aa-424f-a2cb-73af79cd3606
Revision: 38
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal
Last Changed Author: edwardlii
Last Changed Rev: 38
Last Changed Date: 2010-12-28 22:34:51 +0530 (Tue, 28 Dec 2010)

Now I know that whenever people make a changeset or do a svn push,
they usually comment the update/release whatever. How can I access
whatever comment the author has made ?

Looking forward for answers to the above.

Also is it just possible just to kinda browse/look in/get messages of
the newest svn commits and not the actual code ?

I'm asking as I'm in a constrained bandwidth environment and have to
pick and choose when I can pull svn commits. It would be handy to just
get and read through the commit messages and decide when to pull them.

Looking forward for answers.
