[Taking a deep breath...]

Mark, sorry your experience with Subversion has been ...
less-than-pleasant. Unfortunately, you've mailed the Subversion source
code commits list. Your mail is better aimed at
users@subversion.tigris.org (which I'm Cc:ing in this response).

That said, some inline responses follow.

I presume you are trying to access the repository using the URL
"http[s]://SERVER/svn/newwww/", yes? Are you able to, as the user that
Apache runs as, access the repository via "file:///opt/svn/newwww/" ?
Does 'svnlook youngest /opt/svn/newwww' yield anything interesting?

Are there particular aspects of your problems with Subversion that you
feel are specific to versions of Subversion newer than 1.2? Obviously,
keeping the documentation up-to-date is desirable, but as with the code,
is mostly a volunteer effort. If you have patches which will improve
the coverage or quality of that documentation, please submit them (to
svnbook-dev@red-bean.com). Thanks.
