Fedora 11 Update: subversion-1.6.4-2.fc11
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora This update includes the latest stable release of Subversion, fixing many bugs and a security issue: Matt Lewis reported multiple heap overflow flaws in Subversion (servers and clients) when parsing binary deltas. Malicious users with commit access to a vulnerable server could uses these flaws to cause a heap overflow on the server running Subversion. A malicious Subversion server could use these flaws to cause a heap overflow on vulnerable clients when they attempt to checkout or update, resulting in a crash or, possibly, arbitrary code execution on the vulnerable client. (CVE-2009-2411) This update also adds support for storing passwords in the GNOME Keyring or KDE Wallet, via the new subversion-gnome and subversion-kde subpackages.

Summary     : A Modern Concurrent Version Control System
Description :
Subversion is a concurrent version control system which enables one
or more users to collaborate in developing and maintaining a
hierarchy of files and directories while keeping a history of all
changes.  Subversion only stores the differences between versions,
instead of every complete file.  Subversion is intended to be a
compelling replacement for CVS.
