We can do it if it is something you really use. In the past it has seemed
that most Linux distros were more concerned with having the correct tags
in the repository so that they could pull the source themselves. We have
been doing that now for quite a while. You would rather download a zipped
source file? I assume you would just do that part manually and then
launch your own build process? If that is the case, what is special about
your process that you could not just download our build and package it?
Also, I have been seeing the problems "you guys" have been having via
Bloglines. The problem is most likely a mismatch between JavaHL Java
library and the JavaHL binary library. In 1.3 Subversion added a new
initialization method to the library. So if you have a 1.3 JAR and a 1.2
library or vice versa, it crashes. If you search our users@ archives for
"Havoc Pennington" you can find some activity that happened in this area
several months ago.
Finally, I have seen suggestions about removing the svnjavahl.jar file.
You cannot do this, our code depends on it even if using the JavaSVN
Scanned for SoftLanding Systems, Inc. and SoftLanding Europe Plc by IBM Email Security Management Services powered by MessageLabs.
