finding repo format and its performance implications

Asked by Parth Malwankar


I ran bzr info on our repo (server) an it says:

Standalone branch (format: 1.14-rich-root or 1.9-rich-root)

On my client (laptop) I bzr info shows:

Standalone tree (format: 1.9-rich-root)

Is there a way to know what exactly is the format of the server repo?
I am not sure how I ended up with "1.14-rich-root or 1.9-rich-root" on our server.
This is a standalone branch. Is this something I should be bothered about?

Are there any performance implications of this difference between the
client and the server?

I have bzr 1.16.1 on the client (ubuntu) and the server (centos)
has bzr 1.14.1 installed.

The 1.9-rich-root and 1.14-rich-root formats both use the same repository and branch formats. The only difference is the working tree format. If you don't have working trees on the server, it's not possible to distinguish between the two.

Nothing is wrong, and there are no performance implications. (Although there might be minor performance implications from using an older version of bzr on the server.)
