RE: Best *nix for SVN?

I've installed svn on Mandrake 10. It went very smoothly. I'm using both
svnserve, apache + mod_dav_svn.

I have WebSVN installed, that was slightly more work to setup.

I'd never used PAM authentication for httpd before, but I ended up using
PAMPort (http://www.luluware.com/info_mod_auth_pamport.html) and it seems to
work well for WebDAV access to SVN. svn+ssh can exploit PAM "for free" via
ssh's PAM support.

Subject: Best *nix for SVN?

Hi all,

I've got the opportunity to choose a flavour of *nix to install on some Dell
hardware (PowerEdge 2550) - the purpose of this box is primarily as the SVN
repository, but we'll have Apache and Trac on it too. I have experience with
Mandrake, but we can use Debian (preferred by the security people), FreeBSD
(preferred by the web team) or SuSE (preferred by the z/OS people) - Redhat
might look good on the resume ;)

I know the answer is pretty much "it depends", with the availability of
drivers and appropriate packages - I've confirmed the drivers side...

I'm wondering if anyone has had a particularly bad/good experience with
setting up SVN/Trac on any of the following:

        Debian
        FreeBSD
        Mandrake
        Redhat
        SuSE

Many thanks in advance for your comments. As long as I don't mention
windoze, I reckon the chances of keeping it clean are pretty high!

Cheers,

          :D
