Spack - package manager for Linux+Mac

Paul Hammant-3
Spack currently has 1.9.7 as the most recent Svn that it can deliver:

https://github.com/spack/spack/blob/develop/var/spack/repos/builtin/packages/subversion/package.py

Someone may be interested in dipping their toe into that world and
updating their script for them.

Thanks for the heads-up, Paul. I agree it can be worthwhile dipping a toe into such things.

Anyone who takes a look at this, please can you let us all know what you find?

In praise of that community, they appear to be "on it" with respect to
problem reports - https://github.com/spack/spack/pull/10335 being an
example that coming from an issue I'd had with their Python as I ran
through the 1.9.7 install of Subversion with it.  That after them
quickly solving an issue where my Mac's file-system barfed with a
case-insensitive naming collision during initial clone-centric setup
for Spack - https://github.com/spack/spack/issues/10318
