CVS instructions

Postby beergeek » Fri Oct 25, 2002 7:25 pm

Just a quick note about the cvs instructions. It currently say "cvs co blender" By default cvs uses no compression to transfer the files. If you change it to "cvs -z4 co blender" it will automatically use compression which is faster for the user and uses much less bandwidth on the cvs server (checkouts are mostly text and therefore compress very well). The only downside is it increases the load on the server, but in most cases the bandwidth savings are worth it. The number after the z indicates how much the file is compressed before sending. -z3 or -z4 are generally considered the best bandwidth/performance ratio. Just my 2 cents. :)

Thanks for the good hint! I did know it before (really), but it's worth mentioning it so it gets considered in the next change of the CVS instructions.
