Then you've only used Red Hat derivatives. :-)

That looks about right.

Some possibilities:

1. You *have* reloaded xinetd, right? It doesn't pick up new files
automatically.

2. You *have* defined 'svn' in the services file, right? Otherwise,
you'll need to specify a port in your xinetd.d/svn file.

3. Try adding 'disable = no' to the svn service. It's possible that
your xinetd is defaulting 'disable=yes'. Check /etc/xinetd.conf for a
'defaults' service (or /etc/xinetd.d/defaults, possibly).
