Performance tuning Subversion (for binaries)

Performance tuning Subversion: "The performance conclusions in this article are broadly applicable to most any system using Subversion to store and retrieve binary files. The decision of how to optimize Subversion must, however, be based on the circumstances and resources of a given system. For example, in the case of the system under test, time was a much higher priority than server space. It made sense, therefore, to store binaries as compressed tar files before importing them into and exporting them out of Subversion. Compressing the binaries yields the shortest possible wait times, thus meeting the requirements of the project. The repercussions for server space usage are negligible to the system, and in any case compressed tar files take up only a little more space than using efficient check-in."
