Sorry, should have been more clear. Python 2.4 for some of our scripts and tool.

Taking a step back, I don't see why we need to update any of the dependencies
that you've supplied patches for:

1) Bash
2) Python
3) Neon

There's really nothing to gain from doing so except for limiting the systems
that svn can install on. I don't see the point. You never know when somebody
has some ancient system that they want to install svn on. It just makes it more
work then for somebody to get it installed.

I still receive the odd request to install svn on an extremely old OS and the
more dependencies, the more work.

If there's some new feature we need from a newer version of a dependency, then
sure, bump it, but otherwise, this appears to me as gratuitous upgrading.
