There are five mentions of svn(1) in release(7):
- describing the SVNROOT variable
- as default value for the VSCMD variable
- as a command in the first EXAMPLE given
- in SEE ALSO
- in HISTORY
It does not, however, make any mention of git, and therefore cannot be used to create an up-to-date release as-is.
