Like many FHS statements that's a good idea. However, I don't know of a
single linux distribution -- even those which are LSB compliant like Red
Hat, Ubuntu, etc -- that uses the /srv partition. There was a huge
flameware on the fedora list a few years back when redhat brought up
modifying the apache, samba, etc packages to put all of their data on
/srv and as far as I remember, they decided not to do it. The whole
point of a system like that is to make it obvious to a new SysAdmin
where stuff is. I've been a SysAdmin for almost 15 years and I've
personally never seen /srv in use so it's the last place I'd go looking
for a subversion repo. I'd stick with /var or if you must, /var/lib
unless you can find other packages using /srv.

That's just $0.02 (US funds, not canadian!) on the FHS/LSB pie-in-the-sky.
