Neither rpmforge, nor epel has subversion >= 1.5 for rhel4.
I used collabnet, when 1.5.0 first came out and building from source was
extremely difficult ... but the collabnet rpm's had lots of "surprises" like
the silent creation of csvn user which conflicts with our company's UID
numbering scheme. Config files & log files kept in unusual locations. And
there was some kind of problem with svnsync that I don't remember now, and
stuff like that. So ... in later versions of 1.5.x, when it became easy to
build from source, I found that building from source was the clear best
solution for the locations where I support it. Reliable (behaves the same
on all machines). No surprises.
And the trend continues with 1.6. Still easy to build, but no rpm's
available that I trust more than what I build from source.
