I've been the maintainer of svnkit for years but upstream started to use gradle which
is the most broken by design buildsystem when one considers packagers needs - download
everything (including gradle itself!!!), no standard way of doing anything and so on. I
kept an old svnkit version alive for sometime but I gave up when 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,

Subject: [fedora-java] get svnkit back to life?
I've just discovered svnkit is a dead package at rawhide. Being a
dependency for OmegaT 2.6.* I wonder about the reasons to be
deprecated. Anybody can give me any hint?
