Just as an info:
I too had to switch back to neon for the TSVN nightly builds. The beta
release of TSVN was built with serf as the default, and we already had
a lot of reports where checkouts failed, listing repositories failed,
authentication crashed (found from sent crash dump files), ....
All of those issues could be 'resolved' by switching to neon in the
servers file. So to avoid those problems, I made neon the default in
And remember: there are a lot of people out there who don't install
beta versions, so all the reports we already got are only from a very
minor percentage of TSVN users.
