I notice you have a libsvn/libsvn-dev package in 0.13.0. You should
be aware that the API is not yet stable. Anyone building a third
party application against the libraries in 0.13.0 will almost
certainly have a problem when you produce newer library versions. The
subversion package itself doesn't really have a problem, it's third
party applications compiled by a user that will break.

In 0.13.2 Subversion has introduced a library version number, the
libraries now look like libsvn_xxx-1.so, and the headers have moved
from include/ to include/subversion-1/. I don't know how you plan to
handle this, I suppose you could continue to use the name libsvn until
Subversion reaches a stable API and then switch to using libsvn1.

Given that the API is not stable, I wonder if we should be using a
version number of zero rather than one?
