This question gets discussed every so often on different lists.
Personally I don't prefer to use subversion for direct management of
/etc although others probably do. I would use something like radmin
or cfengine for this task. (Actually I use custom scripts but they
are not in any shape for sharing.)

Here are some interesting references for further reading.

If you want further discussion on this topic then I suggest that the
infrastructures mailing list would be a better forum than the
subversion list. It is not really a subversion topic. Check out the
archives of the infrastructure list. Good stuff there.
