Update of patch #4813 (project cvs):

                Category:                    None => Feature Request        
                  Status:                    None => Need Info              


Follow-up Comment #7:

USB key repositories are a good argument.  I've actually done that, though
not with such a large repository.  Compression built into CVS would be more
portable than most compressed file systems too, I expect and not very
complicated to implement.  Backwards compatibility might be an issue, but if
files were being compressed individually (*,v -> *,v.gz), then conversion
into a version that worked with older and third party versions of CVS would
be fairly simple and possible using third party tools.

If someone submitted a patch for this, I would consider it.
