But subversion probably runs on a lot of bigendian-machine, doesn't it?

Started svnserve on SlubOS/be with an empty, newly created repository,
access svn://slug/ from the client: "...longer than 64 characters" :-(

As a last resort created a new repository locally on the client and loaded
the dump there. It's no problem to start svnserve locally and access the
repository via svn://localhost/

So my conclusion is that svn on SlugOS/be-4.8 is seriously broken and I
should complain there. Thank you for listening.

Bye,
