It's not about an attitude. It's about the fact that the software running
tigris.org is a pre-packaged suite, which does not permit much in the way of
code customizations, since they get wiped out when an upgrade occurs.

The subversion developers, even the collab.net ones, recommend using
non-tigris.org archives (see the links page to find them).
