Re: geekyness and ESR's recent tome
In defense of GrayGeek, subversion IS a pain in the butt to install on
RPM based distros. Mainly because it does require bleeding edge versions
of so many things. A lot of people have working apache 2 installs
that they don't want to risk breaking by upgrading to a new version.
Plus, upgrading apache requires upgrading all the modules (PHP, perl,
etc, etc). It's just a huge pain, especially in a production
environment. If you don't need http access, things are somewhat easier,
as you can leave your apache setup alone, although the make install
script does evil things to http.conf.
It's easy enough to install on Gentoo (emerge subversion) though.
