You are right of course.

The Subversion API are still changing often. The result is that applications
who are using the subversion libraries (and header files) needs rewrite
nearly every time a new Subversion version are coming up.

It's just easier to do it under Debian. KDE's svnpart developer tends to do
the svn support based upon the current unstable Debian Subversion package
rather than using the latest Subversion version.

I'm using Linux From Scratch and it have happened one or two times this year
that Gideon compiles with Subversion support for me.

I think you must use Subversion 0.17 if you want to compile gideon as it is
now with Subversion Support.

Then it will probably be very easy for you to fix it. Just head to
www.kdevelop.org, download the CVS and start hacking. The kdevelop will be
very happy to apply a patch from you.

I thing the svnpart man on kdevelop is Mickael Marchand <marchand@kde.org>
He will probably update the code at once if you tells him that the API has
changed again.

Just check out the kdevelop CVS and compile it. I think you will just love
