RE: [Subclipse-users] Svnant not finding javahl

OK, so I understand the answer to my question is that svnant depends on the
subversion client being installed, and that to use the svn ant task all
developers need to install command line subversion on their workstations.

Where is that documented?

It seems a not unreasonable assumption (at least I made it) that since
svnant is distrubuted under subclipse.tigris.org that it was somehow
related. I don't need to install the command line subversion client to use
subclipse, it seemed quite reasonable that svnant would find what it needed
from the subclipse install. I find nothing in the svnant docs that suggests

Should this be filed as an enhancement or doc request in the issue tracker?
Or is there some treasure trove of documentation I haven't been able to
