I'm in the progress of upgrading between various releases of  
subversion, and as a consequence I'm learning new things.

I don't believe the subversion developers promise to maintain their  
meta-information format in a compatible fashion between releases, at  
least not to the same extent as the APIs they publish. What particular  
version of subversion is CCL's installation process dependent on? It  
does not appear to be documented on the trac page.

I'm not keen on the publish-and-install-via-svn option at all.
