I provide the software that forge.mil is built from -- TeamForge. If it
has been upgraded recently than it would be on SVN 1.8.x on the server as
that is the latest version we provide.

Setting a side the CAC issues which are specific to forge.mil, a large
percentage of users use SVN 1.6/1.7 clients simply because they use what
comes with their distro. As you point out, RHEL6 provides SVN 1.6 so we
see a lot of that. There should be no issues specific to the client/server
versions. You should be fine using SVN 1.6. Any timeout problems you are
having are not because of the client version.

If these started after the upgrade, then I would guess there was some
configuration that changed that was overlooked.
