For most tla operations displaying lists of revisions, using the

I suggest a caching mechanisme for patch-log entries, like we already
have revision libraries to cache working directories. My proposal is
to implement this as an extension of the revision library mechanism,
but we could also imagine a separate library.
This problem sounds like one of several that can be solved by archive
The idea is that an archive cache would be a read-only cache that could
contain anything that an archive mirror can, including log files. Its
purpose would be to prevent the user from downloading the same data
twice, (within a reasonable period of time).
The main differences between a local mirror and a cache would be
- caches have incomplete data
- caches fall through to the archive
- caches are created automatically
- caches delete old data
- very different implementation
Anyhow, that's one of my pet ideas. I wish someone would go and
implement the darn things, but for the moment we struggle along with
local mirrors as an approximation.
