Re: older versions of the subversion server

That is a very good question.

Our subversion server has not been updated in a while and it is still on
version 1.4.2. I was looking into updating it to take advantage of the
new merge tracking features (among others).

Since we are using such an old version, I wanted to replicate our
production environment on a test server (thus requiring version 1.4.2)
and performing the upgrade there first.

Do you think I am being overly cautious? What are the chances for a
problem to occur in the upgrade process?

Thank you,

Certainly the source is still available from the Subversion project's web site. Not sure where you'd get older precompiled packages for various OSes.

Note that Subversion 1.4.x and earlier are unsupported by now, and when 1.7.0 comes out, support for 1.5.x will be dropped. Why do you need to use such an old version?
