Thanks, good to know.  It's also part of Debian "testing" and
newer;  it's *not* part of RH Enterprise though.

Installing it from source, http://subversion.tigris.org/
is not hard.  The important thing for the R-project though is to
use  "configure --with-ssl ...."
because only then you get SSL support, i.e. only then you can use https://...
which is (currently) absolutely required as I just said in
another message on this thread.

Use 'https' instead of 'http'.
This is a requirement for svn.r-project.org/    (on purpose).
