I've been running my subversion server on an "unstable" Debian system. It's
been through a few upgrades and no problems have cropped up but I've only
been running it for about a month. I'm accessing it over the network (apache
server). Interestingly the current state is that the subversion programs are
at version 0.26 but the apache dav module is still at version 0.25 ... that
isn't causing any problems though (at least that I've found). It's close
enough to the latest release that I don't bother hand building anything.

For those that want to stick with the stable Debian distribution someone out
there is maintaining the necessary packages for subversion on woody at:

    deb http://people.debian.org/~cjwatson/subversion-woody ./

Add that to your /etc/apt/source.list and "apt-get install subversion". I'm
only using these subversion programs on the client side but they're working
great for me. Everything you need should be in there to run a subversion
server on woody as well, though I haven't tried it.
