Hmm, ideally I don't want to upgrade the server as it's exposed to the
Internet. At the moment it uses standard SuSE 8.2 packages and if SuSE
release security patches they'll be applied automatically. I don't want
to have to track any software on this machine manually, particularly as
I can't guarantee being able to do so quickly if a security hole is

Are there any issues with older clients accessing more recent servers
(within reason - I appreciate Subversion's still officially alpha)?
