The Subversion distro is not _that_ big. The user can click on the setup
program (wich is fast and efficient) or choose the "Subversion on
Internet" menu item. This is two simple and powerful options.

I will split into server/client distros if the whole thing are getting
bigger and/or if I understand that's a real demand for it.
I was thinking about making two distros in the beginning but was
recommended not to do so in this group (and I agree).

I think that one distro will do at the moment but It should not be much
bigger before splitting (limit 5 MB?).
The current distro are aprox. 4 MB in size (this will probably be a bit
smaller when it's not development builded.)

Thanks for your feedback
