Thanks Shot! That sounds great. I can't wait to try it out hopefully
Just for learning's sake, let me try to restate the big picture to
make sure I'm understanding it:
So the big picture here is that we download Subversion from Breezy
which then needs mostly things from Hoary but a few things from
Breezy. So we install all of those things. Now whenever I use apt to
do any kind of updates everything from Hoary gets updated fine, and
the Breezy stuff gets ignored?
The reason this is a better method than making a standalone compile of
Subversion from source is that the hoary dependencies still get
updated and tracked normally, and apt still knows about Subversion in
