Good. I requested that RPMforge update a day or two ago, and they're
available at RPMforge for RHEL 5: the dependency chain has become too
large and awkward for RHEL 4 to continue trying to backport it to an
OS 5 years old. Note that if you use RPMforge and have a system that's
installed with x86_64 RHEL, you'll wnat to remove the i386 versions of
subversion before trying to upgrade with RPMforge, because RPMforge
doesn't follow RedHat's practice of providing both i386 and x86_64
unnecessarily in the x86_64 repository. If you don't do this, the
conflict between RedHat's last i386 version, which 1.4.x based, will
cause weird conflicts with the x86_64, 1.6.13 release published last
night.

Anyone using Subversion on RHEL, I urge you to make sure you've
updated to RHEL 5 and to use the RPMforge repository. RedHat has no
intentions of upgrading their subversion on the older releases, and
the updates are well worth the effort for performance and security
reasons, and for compatibility of Samba shared working copies with
TortoiseSVN.
