At some point I would like to break up the subversion RPM packages in
such a way as to distinguish between the file server, the apache server,
and the svn server components, but alas, that has not been done yet.
That would give users the option of installing exactly the access to the
server that they wanted and would obviate the need for db42 if you decided
not to use that on the client.

Currently, only the apache component is broken out into a separate package
(subversion-server).
