A '''checkout''' is essentially a [:WorkingTree:working tree] with a relatively small amount of metadata.

The meta-data is primarily there to point at the branch that the checkout is associated with.

There are two main types of checkouts: '''lightweight checkouts''' and '''heavyweight checkouts'''. The latter stores more metadata than the former. The amount of metadata available determines whether operations like `diff` or `log` will require access to the associated branch or not.

Checkout

A checkout is essentially a [:WorkingTree:working tree] with a relatively small amount of metadata.

The meta-data is primarily there to point at the branch that the checkout is associated with.

There are two main types of checkouts: lightweight checkouts and heavyweight checkouts. The latter stores more metadata than the former. The amount of metadata available determines whether operations like diff or log will require access to the associated branch or not.

Checkouts provide a location for people to hack on code and commit. Once a user [:Commit:commit]s, the associated [:Branch:branch] is updated with a new [:Revision:revision] that represents the changes for the commit.
