Hi,

Related to my other email regarding diffing a working copy file to a potentially unrelated repository file; my real intent is to find out if two files are different in content and really do not care about the actual differences (the reason I want --summarize).

When performing an svn info on a local working copy, I can see the file's checksum (sha-1 specifically), but this doesn't work on repositories.  It would be really nice and save some bandwidth if I could simply compare checksums versus performing a diff.  Is there support in the SVN server API that supports this property?  If so, is there any interest from the developers to add this xml tag?

c:\Project_files\sandbox>svn info AAAA.txt --xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<info><entry>
<non-XML SNIP>
<wc-info><checksum>f0d19ccba8cd50a4f88c31deeb635c564fadcf5f</checksum></wc-info>
</entry></info>

Thanks again,
Dan
