Further, but damn it all. I wanted this to be a discussion of how SVN
packages itself to the world, and it's turning into you're a moron
because you do this or that as root.

Have the subversion devs set minimal platform guidelines and stuck to
them? I should not have had to install Fedora packages over RH 9.0 just
to run subversion because that's what some developer has installed. Or
if I should, the subversion team should announce that RH 9.0 is not
going to be supported.

I come from the java open source world and our team still enforces
jdk1.2 compatibility. Until last year it was 1.1.

That's part of what "ready for prime time" means to me.
