Why 1.4.2? Where is 1.6+?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Let me know if you find a package. I've run into the exact same issue - presumably RPMForge has updated subversion but not updated mod_dav_svn to go with it - and I don't really see a solution. There is another way to get subversion repositories served through SVNServe, but good luck trying to figure out SASL authentication (I've got an open question to that effect myself). – AlexMax Dec 29 '10 at 15:35

WANdisco builds and tests the latest subversion binaries for a variety of platforms.

Works perfectly, many thanks for the link! – yegor256 Dec 31 '10 at 8:55

There is no 1.6.x rpm for RHEL/CentOS, because nobody has built it. I was unable to find it using In CentOS 5.6 svn should be in 1.6.x (RHEL is in beta now).

mod_dav_svn 1.4 is from your Base repository, not for rpmforge.
