Let me further explain. The xml file I mentioned is 652K. Every diff I
produce shows a single 652K line deleted, and a single 652K line
inserted. Instant 1.3M diff. That seems like a lot of bandwidth just
so folks can filter it after they download it.
I spent a little RTFM time on the CVS homepage, and it looks like
changing this file to a binary file in CVS may do the trick. Does
anyone know if that can be done surgically, or do I have to cvs
remove/add the file?
