How do I check what files in SVN are new against some revision?
Posted on 2008-10-12
I have a web interface to SVN storage. It allows users to view folders, download, add and delete files. I need to implement feature which will show user the list of new files to him. This should be list of files, which were added to svn from the moment of users last login. SVN contains more than 2000 files and folders so it takes more than 30s to check all files details and compile the list on login. How do I implement this in more fast way? Maybe SVN have some tool which will help?
Successful solution shoud be simple with minimum operations. It should take minimum efforts to implement and test. It also should concern that SVN contents may be changed by 3rd party interfaces like SVN client. It is not preferred to cashe because cashed data will be different from actual SVN contents.
