Checkout

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

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 meta-data than the former. The amount of meta-data 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.
