Name        : subversion
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 1.7.14
Release     : 1.fc18
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 update includes the latest stable release of Apache Subversion 1.7, version 1.7.14.  Two security fixes are included:

mod_dontdothat allows you to block update REPORT requests against certain paths in the repository.  It expects the paths in the REPORT request to be absolute URLs.  Serf based clients send relative URLs instead of absolute URLs in many cases.  As a result these clients are not blocked as configured by mod_dontdothat.  (CVE-2013-4505)

When SVNAutoversioning is enabled via "SVNAutoversioning on" commits can be made by single HTTP requests such as MKCOL and
PUT.  If Subversion is built with assertions enabled any such
requests that have non-canonical URLs, such as URLs with a
trailing /, may trigger an assert.  An assert will cause the
Apache process to abort.  (CVE-2013-4558)

Other bug fixes included in this update are as follows:

Client- and server-side bugfixes:
* fix assertion on urls of the form 'file://./'

Client-side bugfixes:
* upgrade: fix an assertion when used with pre-1.3 wcs
* fix externals that point at redirected locations
* diff: fix incorrect calculation of changes in some cases
* diff: fix errors with added/deleted targets

Server-side bugfixes:
* mod_dav_svn: Prevent crashes with some 3rd party modules
* fix OOM on concurrent requests at threaded server start
* fsfs: limit commit time of files with deep change histories
