I think I was the one who came up with that idea. Testing it would be
relatively simple. Set up two machines, networked together. Set up
cvsupd and rsyncd on one machine, both using the same files as a
repository. (all of DragonFly src would bet a good example) On the other
machine, bring all those files down with rsync, and time how long it
takes. Delete the files, and do it again with cvsup. Repeat both a few
times just in case something happens to change the numbers during a run.
Perhaps it should be included in the test an "incremental" update, like
you have the code for DFly 1.6-RELEASE and update those to latest
PREVIEW. I think this is a quite common scenario, probably more common
(and thus important), than starting from scratch.
