I've been running Subversion on Gentoo some time now on my little
voodoo-box (it does almost anything for me, from routing to
fileserving to dns to mail to webserving and so on). I use subversion
for work, private joy and I also host some repositories for friends
and all I can say is that it just runs perfect. I just put the
repositories under /var/svn (/var is on an extra partition here, XFS
afair) but I think that if you do not plan to place 1GB+ sources into
the repository and if you do not work with 20+ developers: put it
anywhere. The best choice is probably the hdd that you trust most :-)
