Description Frank Reppin 2014-10-01 22:46:23 UTC
svnlite was introduced with FreeBSD 10:

  http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=251886
  https://wiki.freebsd.org/WhatsNew/FreeBSD10

The handbook still recommends installing/using 'devel/subversion'/svn:

  https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/svn.html
  https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/synching.html
  [+ maybe more occurences]
  
Which is no bug at all - but devel/subversion comes with
plenty of {probably unwanted/unnecessary} dependencies, depending on
the configuration.
So skip installing devel/subversion and using the builtin svnlite
might be the 1st choice.

There is also numerous references in the FreeBSD Documentation Project Primer for New Contributors:

Also here:

https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/ports-using.html

There is really no need to fetch the ports using devel/subversion when svnlite co https://svn.FreeBSD.org/ports/head /usr/ports works just fine.
Comment 3 Frank Reppin 2017-08-31 23:43:27 UTC
Current Handbook recommendation is more clear now (chapter A.3.3).
Thankyou all! :)
