According to 'svn log', it looks like these two people are working on it:

   Gerhard Oettl <gerhard.oettl.ml {at} oesoft.at>
   Karl Heinz Marbaise <khmarbaise {at} gmx.de>

I don't know of any license incompatibility between the GNU FDL and
the Creative Commons Attribution license used by the Subversion book.
(Although of course the GNU FDL is really twenty zillion different
licenses, depending on which combination of conditions you invoke.)

Especially if you're simply aggregating the Subversion book with other
documentation, I don't think there would be any license problem. Of
course, I am not a lawyer. But the three copyright holders of the
book are sitting right here, and I just asked them how they felt, and
they all said it's fine with them :-).
