Subject: [boost] Trusting Subversion, reducing server load
From: Jim Bell (Jim_at_[hidden])

Doing an SVN update instead of a full check-out would reduce server
bandwidth considerably (and reduce test cycle time).

I wonder if Ticket #4916 <>
has something to do with the decision (not) to trust Subversion.
'--force-update' doesn't wipe out intermediate files as
clearly intends it, making it act like '--incremental'.

I think someone should fix #4916, make '--force-update' the default, and
see what that does to server load.

Then, bring back source browsing if we can.
