Sean,

Yes, it bothers me. I talked you through a subversion
server install some time ago and now you fail to succeed
at it yourself again.

You ask us to change our policy. I don't think that is
a reasonable suggestion. Most people are cluefull enough
to get subversion bootstrapped and running as a server.
That is, if they wish to run a server.
[I personally think it isn't even that hard, with all the
 help in README and INSTALL. Then again, I am biased]

The first thing someone should do when (s)he is considering
subversion at this stage is read the FAQ:

  http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html

Specifically the question:

  Is Subversion stable enough for me to use for my own projects?

I am glad to help people out with problems, but when I see someone
entering irc and asking:
"What is up with the screwball SVN - Apache problems all of a sudden?"
I get a bit annoyed.

Discouraging other people to run HEAD because you can't get it
to work is plain wrong. We do our best to keep HEAD stable
and succeed quite well at it.

Sander
