Regarding the VCS Checkout Mode (https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/TCD9/VCS+Checkout+Mode), I would like to understand what is the rationale behind the decision of making server-side checkout the default option.
We were evaluating the tool and, since we have a very large repository, this was in fact causing a lot of speed problems due to the extra network transfers needed to get the files on the agents.
Only now I figured out that this setting was available, and I'm very curious about the rationale of the decision of making a server-side checkout the default option. Could you enlighten me a bit, please? :)
