[PATCH] Add RISC OS to FAQ Subversion OSes

From: Jack Repenning <jrepenning_at_collab.net>
Date: 2007-09-05 22:40:41 CEST

A user pointed out (to the feedback@tigris.org address) that
Subversion has also been ported to RISC OS, and the FAQ doesn't
mention that. The fix would be trivial, of course:

+<p>All modern flavors of Unix, Win32, BeOS, OS/2, MacOS X, RISC OS.</p>

  <p>Subversion is written in ANSI C and uses APR, the <a

(also attached as a patch file).

But is that the Right Thing To Do? I'd hate to see that line become
a dumping ground for port claims. It also occurs to me that it
appears to imply that MacOS X is not a "modern flavor of Unix," which
I would challenge. (RISC OS is arguably less-than-modern, though, so
maybe substituting the one for the other is the right idea?)
