OK, thanks for the info. I'll look to see how soon I can upgrade the
subversion binary on the remote machine.

Subversion has been working wonderfully for my needs so far, so my thanks
go to all the developers. It's nice to see now that the Linux Kernel is
accessible too, and I've downloaded the 2.4 tree just to see subversion
in action on such a large repository. Needless to say it has handled the
2.4 kernel tree without difficulty. Nice.
