Hi Phil,

First - you posted this same request twice inside of 24 hours. As
active as this list is, it is still only a volunteer, community, at your
leisure, if someone feels like replying, not beholden to the number of
times you ask a question, list. Especially for less critical items such
as yours. Please keep this in mind for your next postings.

Second - What is your experience with other applications you have
installed from package versus source? Subversion is really no
different. If you want to run on the absolute latest and greatest, then
source is your path. If you want to work with a 'higher' level of
stability and integration within your distribution and don't want to
mess with the command line, your package management is better at the
cost of maybe being a little behind on versions. Neither factor impacts
the fact that you still have to manually create the repository or
deployment method or any other additional configuration.
