Subject subversion 1.11.0 on FreeBSD 11.2: ... does not support the HTTP/DAV protocol
Date Mon, 05 Nov 2018 22:21:20 GMT
The default version of Subversion in the Ports of FreeBSD has been switched from 1.10.3 to
1.11.0 in the last week. After running the monthly update of my FreeBSD machines I cannot
connect to HTTPS repositories anymore.

I submitted a bug report to FreeBSD, see:

The FreeBSD subversion port maintainer, verified that the same issue happens with subversion
1.11 on Linux and Windows as well, and he asked me to report the issue here.

In the meantime I deinstalled all subversion packages built from the FreeBSD ports system,
and I built and installed subversion 1.11.0 from the upstream sources (thats’s yours) -
see below. Needless to say that 1.10.3 does not show the issue below, and of course the GitHub
server does support HTTP/DAV.

# fetch
# tar -oxjf subversion-1.11.0.tar.bz2
# cd subversion-1.11.0
# ./configure
# make install clean

# svn --version

svn, version 1.11.0 (r1845130)
   compiled Nov  5 2018, 20:12:13 on x86_64-unknown-freebsd11.2
