      Description

      It's possible to make the cached pristine files in .svn/pristine/ optional. Doing so would be a huge storage savings on the client side, and would make Subversion even more compelling as a system for managing medium-large binary files.

      A much more technically thorough explanation of this issue and its background is available in this 2020-12-29 comment below.

      (Note that the cached pristine base versions used to be stored in .svn/text-base/, so you'll probably see references to that old location throughout this ticket. Also, there used to be one .svn/ directory per working tree directory; later that was changed to one .svn/ directory at the top of the working tree. Knowing that might also help clarify some of the older comments in this ticket.)
