RE: Subversion server: which Linux distro to choose?

I recently tried this setup with Gentoo and it was pretty painless.

With Gentoo, I only had to emerge Apache2, SVN and Trac (although you
have to massage the portage config to get it to pick up SVN 1.3.0 as the
latest 'stable' version is still pegged at 1.2.3) and I was off to the
races. I only really had to setup the Apache config semi-manually, and
switch the module load order around to get HTTPS access configured
elegantly.

All in all a good experience so far.

On Fedora you'll probably run into some issues getting the python
bindings to work, which will affect your ability to setup Trac using
mod_python. Red Hat 9 is not a bad option if the box will be dedicated
to SVN like you mentioned and you're not hung up on not having the
latest & greatest of everything. Our RH9 based SVN server has been
running issue-free for over 18 months now and it's a breeze to install
as long as you know what you're doing.

Cheers
Rob
