I am a member of a project that uses CVS for tracking a large software project. Recently, we encoutered a problem where version 1.2 of a file which had its head version of 1.5 was very slow to extract. We are running 1.12.9 -- the debian stable release.

I tried various other versions of CVS (1.11.17, 1.11.21, 1.12.11, 1.12.12) and they all exhibited the same behavior. The case that caused a problem was the file had 300K lines and 200K fragments (separate add/del ops). This causes the on the order of 2 minutes per file to perform an update. I have isolated the problem to the rcs code that looks like it is at least order n^2 (actually n*m where n is the # of lines and m is the number of fragments).



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
