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).
