Doug:

Mostly we are interested in the client-side merge improvements. We occasionally run into some weird merge errors/conflicts that require us to manually merge eligible revisions from one branch to another.

One last question: are there any specific Subversion bugs that you need fixed?  What I'm getting at is that sitting on an old OS platform comes with some costs.  And, for the most part, unless you're being burned by a specific Subversion bug, why upgrade?

Hi Doug:

The reason is pretty simple: we develop embedded software for a 32-bit platform and compile for both the target (using a cross compiler) and also natively so we can run unit and integration tests on our CentOS workstations.  Our application is not (yet) 64-bit compatible.  Now I know I can run a 32-bit compiler on a 64-bit host OS, but we also need to support a bunch of older projects on our 32-bit infrastructure and we haven’t taken the time to qualify them all on x86_64.  I’m in the process of automating the CentOS 7 x86_64 installation but have hit a few snags along the way.  Eventually (3-6 months) we will be moving to 64-bit CentOS 7 (or possibly 64-bit Ubuntu), but until then we will continue to use 32-bit CentOS 6.  So if it’s not too much of a hassle, I would really appreciate if you can turn the 32-bit CentOS 6 builds back on.

Thanks,
Alfred

You can blame me for the decision to prune out the 32-bit platform support from WANdisco.

I can easily admit to being premature, but I'm finding less demand for 32-bit and really
question why anyone would continue to run 32-bit at this time?  If you could help me understand
then perhaps I can reverse that decision...

Thank you.

We are not quite ready to move to CentOS 7 yet, but hopefully will soon.
However, I don’t understand why the dependencies are different for i686
and x86_64 on the same CentOS 6 platform for Subversion 1.9.X.  Up to
version 1.9.4-1, WANdisco provided binaries for both architectures.
