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
files, and has his packages linked to from the main Subversion webpage at
http://the.earth.li/pub/subversion/summersoft.fay.ar.us/pub/subversion/latest/.
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
appropriately in place for FC* on a managed sort of way. Use the rhel-4.x
SRPM's, they seem to be the most up-to-date.
