I didn't say yum, did I? I didn't say DAG, did I? I said David Summers'
SRPM's. This is because David is the Subversion author of the included .spec

These are linked to from the main Subversion web page.

Even there, you can use the .spec files from the tarball to generate a good
RPM, which will list most of the critical dependencies and put things
