Subject Re: Recommended apr / openssl etc. library version for svn ?
Date Tue, 21 Nov 2017 20:43:25 GMT
I don't know if this helps, but I run Subversion on a Gentoo system, which
is constantly upgrading to newer versions of software. Gentoo does a really
good job of only marking stuff stable when it is actually stable. So if
Gentoo doesn't have openssl 1.1 in use, there's a really good reason.

This is what is currently "stable" on my Gentoo system running Subversion
(which is a few weeks old - minor updates might be available):
*Apache httpd 2.4.27
*Apache Serf(tm) 1.3.8
*APR 1.5.2
*APR-util 1.5.4
*APR iconv (not installed on my machine)
*Expat 2.2.1
*OpenSSL 1.0.2l
*PCRE 8.41
*SQLite 3.19.3
*ZLib 1.2.11

Specifically, in the case of openssl, I found this bug tracking all the
compatibility problems: https://bugs.gentoo.org/592438 . Seems like you
probably want to stay away from it.

Eric.
