This is quite common. So is the reverse. The confusion comes when
trying to roll back to a previous version of either, or when features
supported well by a newer feature are expected to operate with an
older version. The problem is especially notable when a user expects
features of 1.7 or 1.8 to work with a really old, old version still in
production use, such as subverison 1.4.x on an old and non-updated
RHEL 5 operating system.

But 1.7.x and 1.8.x, I'd be very surprised to see any issues at all.
The more common problem right now is subversion 1.6, which is still
the supported subversion on RHEL 5 and RHEL 6.

That should be completely workable. But why don't you just check it
out with subversion-1.8.x to start with?
