*True*. And I see that wandisco has chosen to make it a yum enabled
repository, which is cool and makes updates easier. Unfortunately, it
also includes upgrades and system replacements for "serf" and
"mod_dav", which are requirements for the Subversion update but will
replace Red Hat published versions of those components. That can make
dependency handling tricky if you run other web services on the
Subversion server.
