I have a question about Subversion that I can't quite coax Google into answering. Is there any problem with copying an existing working copy and using that instead of running
svn checkout to create a new working copy?
You might want to do this if checkouts from your Subversion repository are very slow, see. I tried it out and it seems to work, but I wonder if there are any hidden pitfalls to this method. If you have any ideas please comment.
