Greetings, Timothy Kallinis!

TK> Andrey, thanks for the reply. No, I don't believe I can compile svn 1.5 or
TK> 1.6 under my current Sarge server. I believe there were issues with Python

I don't know SVN codebase, I can only assume, as I don't see any python-specific
libraries in SVN 1.6 binary distribution, it does not need it to run.
May be Python scripts need at compile time... I don't know.

Sorry, I can't answer your question... Your best bet is just try it, copy to
your server as separate directory and run as many tests as you only can
invent. Property editing, commit (especially - import into the root of
repository), checkout, diff...
