gitolite3 package lists Subversion as a dependency
Last modified: 2013-07-19 00:02:38 EDT
Is there a reason why subversion is a dependency for gitolite3? I don't see this requirement in other distributions (I checked Gentoo and Debian), and it isn't listed in upstream's list of requirements.
I suspect it's just a mistake, so I thought I'd bring it up. :)
Actually it needs the svnserve command for /usr/share/gitolite3/commands/svnserve.
gitolite v2 supports svnserve too I think, but it's not a requirement over there. Seems inconsistent. I want subversion on my machine anyways either way, so it's not a big deal to me. I just wanted to bring it up, and since the requirement is intentional, I'm okay with it.
