--------------------------------

             Summary: SVN viewspec feature
                 Key: SVN-4753
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-4753
             Project: Subversion
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Julian Foad


A "view spec" feature has often been requested to control the "shape" of a checkout - for
example, to selectively exclude and include subdirectories to make a sparse WC.

Several of the pieces needed now exist:
 * experimental "svn info --viewspec" command outputs a view spec describing the current WC
shape
 * the old script "tools/client-side/svn-viewspec.py" takes a view spec as input and creates
a checkout
 ** inefficient - it downloads everything first and then deletes the unwanted bits
 * an ugly hack for doing a view spec checkout efficiently is described here:
