Hi ,
I have a question about branching in CVSNT - it seems to be getting slower
and slower on our repository, it is currently taking over an hour to create
a branch across the whole repository.  I am running CVSNT 2.5.02 Build 2115
on XP Pro.
The repository has about 18000 files and is just over 1Gb in size so it is
fairly large, however when we first set it up it took less than 6 minutes to
perform the same operation.
Can someone tell me if this slow-down is just normal - a product of creating
a large number of tags and branches?  Should I expect it to get slower and
slower?  I've been searching around but I cannot find any documentation that
covers this.
Any responses or suggestions welcome, thanks,

Colin Fraser, Development Manager
