The terminology is a bit unfortunate here.

There's a HTTP/2 protocol, rfc7540, but it has *nothing* to do with what
Subversion design documents refer to as "HTTPv2".  The latter is simply
a different way for libsvn_ra_serf to communicate with mod_dav_svn, but
it was designed and implemented in terms of HTTP/1 requests and responses.
(Of course, one ought to be able to run HTTPv2 over HTTP/2 if one uses
serf and httpd versions that support the latter.)

In hindsight, we should have chosen a different name for that protocol revision.
