Well, as I said, it works for *me*. I haven't extensively tested the
effects of the httpd update because I don't have the means to do so. I
just really needed an up-to-date svn.

I tend to update my packages when there is a security issue that needs
to be fixed in one of the apps that I (re)packaged.

I haven't encountered strangeness with the newer apr in combination with
other packages in the main repos that depend on it. Again, this is not
heavily tested.

The reason I posted is because someone seems to need a newer svn and I
thought my small contribution could save him/her some work. If someone
would be (rightfully so) concerned with replacing a package, he/she
could always download the srpm(s) and deal with it as a local
customization to the distro.
