That's a joke.

It takes months (literally!) between an SVN release
and a Debian (and all based on it) or Mandriva
distro. Neither of these are "obscure" distributions.
It sometimes takes a long time for other distros too.

One that doesn't necessarily have httpd
pre-installed and other stuff that SVN needs (and
that's a lot compared to most stuff we install!)

We even have servers without gcc/cc/whatever, so
don't tell me about compiling svn as a general install
option (especially if the source is no longer self
contained)
