Frank Warmerdam asks whether we are happy with them changing SVN from BDB to FSFS. My vote is:

+1 to let them do whatever it takes to get SVN stable. 

Ideally you could switch over during your evening hours then we wont even feel anything. Please someone who is subscribed to mapbender_dev notify this list beforehand. 

Best regards and thanks for the help,
