The fink svn binary packages are not yet released, the 1.0.0 will be
available shortly, though. It should be on the fink servers within a
few days.

The 1.0.1 version is in the unstable tree and you will need to build it
with 'fink install svn-ssl' or 'fink install svn-client-ssl'.

It is only a dependency during build time. You will not need it if you
wait for the binary installation with 'apt-get install svn-ssl'.

It should be no problem with Fink. Fink is built in a way so that its
packages should not interfere with the rest of the system. If you
experience any problems please write to the fink-users mailing list:

Yes, they are. Except that the default python command will use the fink
installed python then.

No problem. I think it makes more sense to ask these type of questions
on the fink-users mailing list next time.

It would also be nice if you send me some feedback on how the
installation of the svn package went.

Thanks, Chris.
