So I think this is not one of the Linux pro's. Support for SVN isn't OS dependent and can be found on mailing list archives or forums : here again I don't think I can consider it as an objective Subversion + Linux pro's...

I think he meant that most distributions include packages for
Subversion, so you'd be ready to go "out of the gate."

Getting official support for these, however, may prove difficult. But
there's also CollabNet to help you there (and probably others).

Trouble is (if you use the SVN package for your distro), you may be
stuck with whatever SVN release the distribution maintainers packaged.
My Linux box at home came w/ SVN 1.1.3 (or thereabouts) and because I
haven't upgraded the OS (Fedora 3) in ages, I'm "stuck" there unless I
compile my own.
