up2date is an automated system for Red Hat to distribute errata
(either security fixes or updates), much like Microsoft's Windows
update service.

As for Red Hat updating subversion, I wouldn't expect it to happen
though you can certainly try entering a bugzilla RFE against Red Hat 9
(www.redhat.com/bugzilla )

For those unfamiliar with how Red Hat works Red Hat releases a new
version of their base Red Hat Linux product approximately every 6
months. Thus whatever successor to Red Hat 9 is should be released
around September.

However, the key date for the next Red Hat release (and hence for
whatever version of subversion you would like to see in the next Red
Hat release) will be approximately 3 months from now when Red Hat
starts their next beta cycle. As a general rule whatever version
appears in the beta will be the version shipped (allowing for bug
fixes) as Red Hat is very strict on not upgrading to a newer version
of a package once the beta cycle has started.
