Smart Server for Bzr

Registered by Robert Collins on 2005-10-27

A smart server offers many opportunities for optimising network traffic and enforcing policy at a central point. Many projects will want to enforce such policy or have sufficiently busy/large trees that a smart server will be an important, optional component for them. This spec is about designing the interface the smart server should offer for bzr to access.
