Re: RFS: subversion (updated package) [lenny-backports, 1.6.12dfsg-1~bpo50+2]
Just a couple comments based on the changelog, I haven't looked at the

How about backporting a newer serf instead so you don't have to lose the
functionality? As long as the build dependencies and dependencies are
versioned properly (and you know they already are) then everything will
just work at build time and run time. The BPO buildd's are also smart
enough to deal with it.
It looks like it backports cleanly with no changes.
(BTW if you run into a reason why the package doesn't build or run because
it needs a versioned build-dep/dep to the backport and also file a bug on
the package to have it added)

I think these probably make more sense than trying to backport all that
stuff (assuming everything still works OK with the older versions).

I wouldn't bother fixing these for the backport.
