> To be frank, we have been unable to find a compelling reason to upgrade our server from 1.5, though on the client end we use 1.6 versions.  The unfortunate thing is that the various improvements made since early 1.5 have almost never said (in the release notes) whether they were on the client or on the server, and we cannot justify the cost/risk of an upgrade without knowing more specifics.

The release notes at
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/release-notes/1.6.html indicate
client vs. server on quite a few of the changes, and at least a few of
the ones that aren't marked are pretty clear from the description
which they affect.
