wow... yet another reason to hate SuSE Linux... ( as if YaST isn't
enough reason all on it's own )


ok, sorry for the OT rant.

That all being said, then, I suppose, the real answer from my
perspective is, put it wherever makes sense for the Unix / Linux flavor
you are using. On Solaris, I'd probably lean towards installing the SVN
binary in /opt/subversion and the repo in /export/svn, for example. On
RedHat it would be /var/lib/svn or /var/svn (since http goes into
/var/www). Apparently those cursed enough to use SuSE would put it in

The idea behind all of those things is that this sort of thing should be
easily discoverable and obvious.
