RFE: Update to Subversion v1.4.6
Last modified: 2008-02-13 10:15:09 EST
Description of problem:
Subversion v1.4.5 is available, with a security fix.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The security issue only affects Win32 clients.
Since subversion doesn't currently build in rawhide:
and since everything in rawhide that uses subversion needs to be rebuilt against
the new subversion because of the openssl/openldap soname bump, maybe this would
be a good time to rebase against 1.4.5?
1.4.5 adds *only* a Win32-specific change. Rebuilds are failing at random
points in the test suite and I'm yet to determine why.

Yep, I realized that when I looked closely. I had a (vain?) hope that the 1.4.5
update might fix those test suite failures. The Debian bug report
had a cryptic reference to the problem at the end of the report, but details or
fix. I guess you already saw that because you extracted the SWIG patch from there.
Please update to 1.4.6 (in Fedora-8 also). It fixes several bugs.
Raw Hide is updated, F7/8 updates are in progress.
