The envisioned overall architecture

I just created this diagram of the envisioned overall architecture of NautilusSvn and thought it would be useful to share. It doesn’t completely represent the currently implemented architecture though it is quite close.

Overall architecture of NautilusSvn

The D-Bus service consists out of a status monitor which uses inotify to monitor the filesystem and a status cache to speed up status requests etc. The status monitor will notify all registered clients of any interesting actions, so information is pushed to clients. Note that it may be possible for clients to use the VCS abstraction layer directly and not have to pass through the D-Bus service if they so prefer.
