I am the package maintainer of the fink svn packages.

That should not matter, but of cause it could.

In that case they definitely are. I haven't updated the svn packages
in a while before svn 1.4 came out. The new 1.4 packages seem to work
very well. So I suggest that you update to those packages.

A couple of notes:

1)
"unstable" in Fink terms often means actually more stable, since the
packages are newer. Your mileage may vary...
But please: Give me some feedback on how the new packages work, so I
can move them to the stable tree soon.

2)
To enable packages in the unstable tree please read:
http://www.finkproject.org/faq/usage-fink.php#unstable
and
http://www.finkproject.org/faq/usage-fink.php#bindist

3)
The new svn packages are now using the OS supplied openssl libraries.
So you no longer need (nor should) install the -ssl package variants.
Just use 'fink install svn-client', 'fink install svn', or 'fink
install libapache2-mod-svn'
(You might need to first remove any svn-ssl packages before
installing the new packages)

4)
There is an inofficial binary distribution for the unstable tree: Add
"deb http://fink.sodan.ecc.u-tokyo.ac.jp/apt/10.4 unstable main
crypto" to /sw/etc/apt/sources.list . Remember it's not officially
supported, don't expect us to fix breakage!

Hope that helps!
Chris
