After subversion has been rebuilt against the latest perl (cf. - thanks a lot, by the way!), it seems that WebDAV support is broken/missing from the package. Checking out a repository through http(s) yields

svn: Unrecognized URL scheme for ''

Package versions:
* subversion 1.4.5-3

Steps to reproduce:

Just checkout any svn repository through http(s).
This task depends upon

I can confirm this, but it does not affect the package currently in extra/ (1.4.5-2) as the bugreport states, but the package in testing/ (1.4.5-3)

The package in extra/ still works.

Oh yes, of course, sorry! :)

I can also confirm this. SVN+SSH is broken as well.

Current version doesn't work for me either. But in the meantime I monkeyed with the subversion-neon.patch and PKGBUILD to get it working. See attachments. Just be sure to copy all the other stuff from /var/abs/testing/devel/subversion (or whereever you have it) to a different directory and build away. Seems to be working for me, but as always YMMV.
