That's fine, if you don't mind running old software its developers will not support anymore. Subversion 1.6.x will become unsupported when Subversion 1.8.0 is released. That doesn't mean it will stop working, but it does mean if you report a problem against it at that time, we'll just tell you to upgrade to a supported version first.
