That is correct. The new RHEL3 Subversion 1.2.0 only supports FSFS
backend and not Berkeley DB as the Berkeley DB version that comes with
RHEL3 is version 4.1.25 which is not recommended for use with Subversion,
and trying to get Subversion to use Berkeley DB 4.2.52 has so far proved
impossible to do (patches welcome).

See the "rpm -qp --changelog subversion-1.2.0-1.rhel3.i386.rpm" release
notes.

If you are using the Berkeley DB backend before you upgrade you will need
to do a svnadmin dump/load cycle. This is not a problem with Subversion
but a consequence of the new RHEL3 Subversion 1.2.0 *RPM* not supporting
Berkeley DB.

If anyone can figure out how to get the RPM to correctly use 4.2.52 RPMs
when 4.1.25 RPMs are still installed, please let me know. I've not been
able to figure it out.
