Name        : subversion
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 1.6.15
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://subversion.apache.org/
Summary     : A Modern Concurrent Version Control System
Description :
Subversion is a concurrent version control system which enables one
or more users to collaborate in developing and maintaining a
hierarchy of files and directories while keeping a history of all
changes.  Subversion only stores the differences between versions,
instead of every complete file.  Subversion is intended to be a
compelling replacement for CVS.

Update Information:

This release includes the latest Subversion release, fixing several bugs:

* improve svnsync handling of dir copies 
* hide unreadable dirs in mod_dav_svn's GET response
* make 'svnmucc propsetf' actually work
* limit memory fragmentation in svnserve
* fix 'svn export' regression from 1.6.13
* fix 'svn export' mistakenly uri-encodes paths
* fix server-side memory leaks triggered by 'blame -g'
* prevent crash in mod_dav_svn when using SVNParentPath
* allow 'log -g' to continue in the face of invalid mergeinfo
* filter unreadable paths for 'svn ls' and 'svn co'
* fix abort in 'svn blame -g'
* fix file handle leak in ruby bindings
* remove check for 1.7-style working copies
