4.172. subversion

Updated subversion packages that resolve an issue are now available.
Subversion (SVN) 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.

Bug Fix

BZ#809384
The "svn" command unnecessarily required access to the parent directory during certain types of merge operations, which could have been denied by the server's authorization policy. This update corrects the svn command's behavior so that it no longer attempts to access a repository's parent folder during operations, with the result that it is no longer denied by access control or authorization policies.
All users of subversion are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue.
