I've just configured the automatic check-out plugin, which works fine for 
what it says it does : it automatically check outs the entire module to a 
given directory. Now is the fact that our main module is huge (several 
thousand of files in several hundred directories), what makes it 
impossible to commit a file : you have to wait a few minutes before the 
checkout is done.
Is there a way to configure the shadow file that it only check-outs the 
files which were committed at that time. I can schedule a complete 
checkout from time to time, but don't want our developers to be stuck 
while waiting until everything is updated. I'm thinking on the %{s} 
properties which can be used in the loginfo-files and others.

If this isn't possible : is there another way to check-out immediately the 
committed files? We do a compile straight after the commit, and we must be 
sure the new version is used.

We're on win32
