Hi Mark,

First - a little more decorum in addressing all of the VOLUNTEER efforts
here goes a long way toward a response.

Second - please provide the list a little more detail about your system
- What OS? How did you build it / compile it?

FWIW - if you had read every post on the mailing list you would see that
there are many people running Subversion 1.3 successfully on Apache
2.2. I can count myself amongst them.

As for the previous posting and results -
1 - Subversion does not support single file checkouts. This has been
documented on the mailing list before and is listed in the FAQ -
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#single-file-checkout and

2 - The results of svnlook provide you with the eariliest revision
within the directory on which you ran the command. In this case,
revision 1 is the earliest revision at the root of your repository.
Which is somewhat to be expected. But it was a test.

Thanks for using Subversion, and have a nice day.
