ok, this is getting out of hand. i have no problem with subversion (or
any other package) having an unofficial, unreleased dependency. what i'm
objecting to is a publicly-accessible, allegedly FC1-compatible repository
that *suggests* that it's designed to work cleanly with FC1 systems, when
it simply doesn't and, if used, will break FC1 systems. which is exactly
what the summersoft repo does.

i'm sorry that i can't be any clearer than that.
