I don't know of anyone who's gotten Subversion (even just the client) to
work on VMS. It's not impossible to make it happen, but I don't think
anyone has actually done it yet. The first step would be obtaining a
working version of APR for VMS, the stock APR from Apache doesn't
support VMS out of the box, but I've heard rumors of an Apache2 port to
VMS by HP, which would have to include an APR port, so that might be a
place to look.

There are a few people who have expressed interest in such a port in the
past though, myself included, so if you do give it a shot I'd love to
hear about any problems you run into.
