I don't know of any public hosting service. Sourceforge has said
they'll support svn someday, when it's 1.0. But that's all I've heard.

CollabNet isn't in the business of setting up public hosting services.
CollabNet gets paid millions by companies like Sun for licensing &
hosting sites like java.net, netbeans.org, and openoffice.org. :-)

CollabNet's open-source platform, SourceCast, isn't yet using
Subversion in production. It's still an experimental integration in
the latest version of SourceCast, but will be "mainstream" in the next
major SourceCast release. That's the reason you don't see Subversion
running on the java.net site... not because "people are nervous".
