Do you happen to know how the decision is made to update the
subversion rpm included in RHEL6.x? Projects that jump their version
numbers all the time and let old versions remain broken tend to
conflict badly with 'enterprise ' distributions that want stable APIs.
 There have been rare exceptions to bumping application versions
within an RHEL major rev lifespan but mostly in desktop type apps.
The odds are very likely that any unfixed bugs in 1.6 are going to
continue to affect a lot of people on RHEL/CentOS for another decade.
