Dear Mark (and other users),

Thanks for the ping and sorry to not get back sooner.

We tend to not rush into the total system upgrades (KForge uses a lot
of packages many of which (e.g. trac) require per-service hand-run
upgrades). Knowing that this was urgent however, we suddenly thought
about using etch-backports to upgrade svn (we should really have
thought of this before).

Unfortunately having now performed the upgrade to svn 1.5.1 it seems
the problem has *not* gone away :( This suggests it may be something a
bit more subtle (and related to working of KForge auth/authz system).

We're going to take a look at this asap and hope to have a fix very
soon (it's not trivial to debug this problem because we need to have a
test instance of KForge running using the relevant apache/svn/etc
packages on which we can reliably getting a failing 'test'). Apologies
for any inconvenience and we hope to have this sorted soon.
