Subversion 1.0 via Fink

Encouraged by Christian Schaffner's comments on my last post I cleaned up my iBook and re-installed Fink. I then enabled the unstable tree and typed;

# fink install svn-client

Voila, I now have a working subversion client on my Mac.

I'm also a bit sleep deprived because I kicked this off at about 9:30 last night and watched it install. Which took nearly three hours. That's a trifle long I'd say.

The reason it took so long, as far as I can tell, is that it involved downloading the source for 43 packages and then building and installing each one. The sooner a binary package is available the better.

Good to hear! As soon as the packages that svn depends on are moved to the fink stable tree i will be able to move it too. Hopefully this week...
