  Yes, I belive that's correct. The JavaSVN work is separate from
  the "official" Subversion codebase, has it's own release cycle, etc.

  Check http://tmate.org/tracker/main_page.php for known issues with
  JavaSVN. The developer (Alexander Kitaev) is on this mailing list,
  but it's probably best to contact him at tmate.org (alex(at)tmate.org),
  I don't know if he'd pick up on any discussion about JavaSVN here.

  As for advantages, well, hmm. You'd get a pure-java implementation
  by using it, so no need to find the platform specific .dll/.so files.
  However, you lose the "tried-and-true" usage of the real Subversion
  libraries, to which the JavaHL bindings are just a wrapper. It's
  probably easier to install/deploy the JavaSVN implementation, you don't
  need separate versions for different platforms.
