I agree. When I last asked about Subversion on Alioth, Wichert told me
that it had been tried but failed its test suite on that machine. If
somebody familiar with Subversion had the time to debug it there, or
find out if it still needs to be debugged, that would probably help.

I would like to move my packages from
http://riva.ucam.org/svn/cjwatson/src/debian/ (those that I've got round
to importing) to somewhere more public and useful to other developers,
