ah, sorry. I meant it the other way around. I know of course that fsfs is fully stable and the default backend since several releases. I thought that
ra_serf has reached a similar stability by now, thus is ready for production usage. I got that expression because I never saw a warning that I'm about
to build any experimental component into subversion and because everyone is including ra_serf tests during the release procedure of a release candidate.

But I got the point that this is not the case :) , sorry for the noise. (and of course thank you for your time and answer).

Regards,
Jens
