I will try this. However, I got some amazing performance difference
between ext3 and reiserFS. On another source-tree, much smaller than the
one I'm working with now. Here is the output:

address@hidden crm-arch]$ find -type f | wc -l

On ext3 a time tla changes takes about 300 seconds (not only in the
first run). reiserfs does the same thing in 11 seconds the first time, 7
seconds the second time. I don't know how this relates to NTFS, because
at the company, we primary use windows (2K, 2003).

Sounds good

Is this a branch to merge the changes in the other arch-project?

Yes, would perfectly work

Well, here's a little problem. There are a lot of tasks that require
direct attention. Working ad-hoc requires you to switch often from
development project. It would cost a lot of diskspace if I need every
dev-project I'm working on checked out, so I have multiple working

Or is it possible to work on development branch A, do some changes,
switch to dev-branch B, do some changes, commit B, merge with test,
switch back to dev-branch A. Does A still have the modified files?

It did, but I still have a few things I need to get clear. I will think
it through.

Kind regards,
