How to pre-populate a user workspace?

Hi,
My team is a widely distributed team, and we have evaluated CCRC for our use and our now evaluating Jazz.

One of the issues we ran into with CCRC was how long it takes to setup a working envirnonment. For the remote teams it took over an hour to down load every file in the project (about 150M of files).

Since we are currently using SVN we have been able to zip up a snapshot of the source code, and use rsync to copy the resulting file to each of our locations. So, our current process for getting a user workspace setup is to unzip the file from a local server and updating the results using SVN. The whole process maybe takes 10 minutes today.

Anyone have any clever ideas on how we might accomplish something similar using Jazz RTC?

Lets change the question a bit. I am interested to know what is the

difference in performance between RTC loading a workspace and Rsync a
zip file and uncompressing it.
