Subject AW: SVN File Size
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2011 09:18:06 GMT
Hi all,
First of all, I would like to thank you for your dedication to this issue
I would like to resume:

a) there is work on serverside in 1.7 that cares about file size
b) svnlook filesize makes use of it in 1.7
c) there might be issues related to svn:eol and svn:keywords
d) It is worth to create a ER for svn log

I will try to dig into the code and see if I am able to understand, the rough structure of
Where should I look to, as a starting point? I am not anymore so fluent in C but I will try
my best.
For sure I should know more details about the architecture, but I would like to concentrate
on the part that 
deals with this one.
