Subject RE: Subversion on RedHat
Date Mon, 22 May 2017 09:04:16 GMT
Red Hat have a ABI (application binary interface) consistency policy within their major revisions.
For example RHEL 6 distributes Apache httpd-2.2.15 - and will only ever include httpd-2.2.15.

This is good because it allows users of RHEL6 to have a consistent software version that they
know will not shift in functionality, configuration or behaviour.

You will notice though that the patch level shifts - (RHEL6.4 includes httpd-2.2.15-28) this
is due to Red Hat backporting patches into their version of the package.

The same is true of the Subversion packages distributed by Red Hat - the version distributed
with RHEL will be lower version number than that supported by the Subversion community - however
since you're using RHEL you should have a support contract with Red Hat where you can submit
bug-reports related to the version on your platform.

However as Zdenek states if you're interested in using the features of a more modern version
then you can use the WANDisco or CollabNet RPM's - however you should then expect the level
of support that you're paying for from those vendors.

Dumb question maybe.

What is the situation with RedHat?

They do deliver Subversion 1.7 in their repositories but latest releases of Subversion (1.9)
states that the 1.7 version will not accept any more bug report.
