"Pure Java Subversion (SVN) Client Library"  -

JIRA uses this for its Subversion support.  It has worked pretty well for
us so far.

Incidentally, JNI libraries cause problems with users, not developers.
Some people can barely type 'set JAVA_HOME=... ; cd bin ; startup.bat' -
let alone locate and install svn libraries for their particular OS.


(Cocoon docs? Go Daisy! :) Write an xdoc importer, twist Steven's arm
till he promises to maintain it like we do for JIRA, and its beer and
skittles from there on!)
