Hi - the "Subversion on CentOS" are missing a key point - can someone modify:
to fix them?

These docs need to add the info from:
"In your /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf, there should be a series of LoadModule lines that load "dav_module" and "dav_fs_module" (amongst others) -- those need to be loaded before mod_dav_svn."
Thus, you need to uncomment those 2 lines in "/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf".

Otherwise, the install will fail; when you try to:
  /sbin/service httpd restart
you'll see this message instead:
  Starting httpd: httpd: Syntax error on line 210 of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf: Syntax error on line 2 of /etc/httpd/conf.d/subversion.conf: Cannot load /etc/httpd/modules/mod_dav_svn.so into server: /etc/httpd/modules/mod_dav_svn.so: undefined symbol: dav_register_provider
