Update for SVN on Synology to 1.10

Keith

Hi,

I have recently purchased a Synology NAS to run svnserver on, unfortunately, the Synology version of SVN is 1.9.7, it looks like it has not been updated for over a year.

My problem is that all of my repositories are FS 8 as I have been using 1.10 for quite a while now.

I contacted Synology, and they replied with :-

"Unfortunately the SVN application provided to us by the SVN developers is only on version 1.9.7, if you wish to have this updated to 1.10 you would need to contact the SVN developers/support team to request for them to provide an updated version to us as this is not something that we develop or manage as this is not our application.".

Is it possible for someone to provide an update to them please?

Best Regards

Keith Bedford

Hello Keith.

You have reached the developers of the Subversion system software -- that is, the central project that produces source code. However, installable packages of Subversion for various devices and desktop operating systems are handled entirely by independent packagers, who may not be closely in touch with the central project. We do not actively provide Subversion packages to Synology, and I am not aware that they have been in touch with us (although I could have missed it); rather, it is their responsibility to pull the publicly available source code, or to ask us for help if they need any, when they wish to do so.

So I think their reply to you is mistaken.

Regards,
