Is Permanently Accept SSL Certificate gone in 1.10.4 ?

Hi all,

I have a script accessing an old svn server whom SSL certificate have
expired a long time ago. Up to now, I was permanently accepting the
certificate on the first run of the script and then everything was
sailling smooth. I reinstalled a couple of months ago a new box where
this script was intented to run and the (p)ermanently option seems not
provided anymore.

Thankfully, I still have the "old" running box to double-check, and
the (p)ermanently option is still present. Both boxes are Debian
Buster (but was installed as unstable, before the official release).
The (p)ermanently option was also present in svn on previous versions
of Debian.

I can notice that the versions of svn changed between my old and new
box from 1.10.2 to 1.10.4. Nonetheless, I gave a look at the
change-log [1] and it doesn't seem specified this option has been
removed. I also gave a look on openssl version and it went upgraded
from 1.1.0h to 1.1.1b, but I have no clue to evaluate if the removal
of the (p)ermanently option is linked or not the openssl upgrade.

If some of you have an hint and an half to explain how and why this
option disapeared, that would be really nice. I wonder if it was meant
or not, to see where I'm headed.

More over, I would really appreciate if someone could share a solution
to still permanently accept the certificate on the new box, as for
now, I can't use this box and the old one should soon be
decommissioned.

Best Regards,
Pierre
