Description Laurent Frigault 2014-05-28 15:40:00 UTC
The handbook advice to install devel/subversion in order to upgrade system/doc/port source :


Unfortunately subversion has many dependencies:
Port:	subversion-1.8.8_2
Path:	/usr/ports/devel/subversion
Info:	Version control system
Maint:	lev@FreeBSD.org
B-deps:	apr- db48- expat-2.1.0 gdbm-1.11 gettext- libiconv-1.14_3 libtool-2.4.2_2 pkgconf-0.9.5 serf-1.3.5 sqlite3-
R-deps:	apr- db48- expat-2.1.0 gdbm-1.11 gettext- libiconv-1.14_3 serf-1.3.5 sqlite3-
WWW:	http://subversion.apache.org/

under 10.0, the base system has svnlite which can be use for this task.
Before 10, the port/package net/svnup can be used.

Port:	svnup-1.05
Path:	/usr/ports/net/svnup
Info:	Lightweight program to pull source from an Apache Subversion server
Maint:	jcm@visi.com
WWW:	http://jcm.dsl.visi.com/freebsd/svnup/

svnup (and probably svnlite) was created to remove the need to install subversion and all its dependencies. The handbook should be modified to teach users to use them instead of subversion.

For bugs matching the following criteria:

Status: In Progress Changed: (is less than) 2014-06-01

Reset to default assignee and clear in-progress tags.

Mail being skipped

Right now the handbook recommends svnlite.
