I've been the maintainer of svnkit for years but upstream started

even the old version can't be compiled due to incompatibility with latest
subversion-javahl. I can't convince myself that it makes sense to neither work on old
svnkit to compile with latest subversion-javahl nor touching anything gradle related. Best
approach for me is someone interested to rewrite svnkit buildsystem using something
normal(ant, maven, pure make, even autotools).
Or patch OmegaT to use subversion-javahl instead, I wonder if that
would be easier.
