They're in github as well. I should probably add these comments to the
patches, but not tonight.

                 Updated version of get-deps.sh, with with consistent
syntax, latest dependencies, and selection of new sqlite-autoconf
package instead of sqlite-amalgamation.

                 Old RHEL/Fedora patch, set KDE configuration
directories correctly for RHEL

                 Old RHEL/Fedora patch to use "-pie" for compiled binaries.

                 RHEL/Fedora patch to set KDE options corectly for kwallete.

                 RPM building patch to set up symlinks for svnmucc,
when "DESTDIR" for RPM building doe snot match installation directory.
Ose only for RPM building.

There are other configuration files specifially for building RPM's,
such as the "subversion.conf" for configuring an Apache server for
mod_dav_svn, and an svnserve.conf for snvserver setups, and "psvn.el"
and "psvn-init.el" from a third party for setting up Emacs in more
detail for Subversion.

I'm interested: I've not gotten far lately with repoforge (which seems
to have gone idle) or getting past the initial setup for Fedora and
EPEL. And I'm afraid that EPEL woul dnever include subversion-1.7.x or
subverison-1.8.x, because it would be an irreversible client format
update from their current subversion-1.6.x.
