Mandrake almost always has the latest version unless there's a reason
not to. They're not conservative generally in that regard. That's one
thing a lot of people like about them.

Nope subversion isn't in main, it's not really my call if it will end up
there. It's kinda difficult to ask a main package to change versions to
support a contrib package...

I could probably just add the bdb 4.2 RPM myself without asking for a
ruling. But I don't really want to maintain it. I've already got
enough packages that I maintain...
