Given this notification, I'll take care of this bug.

I think the solution to this is to package a new upstream release,
however upstream switched SVNKit building process to Gradle.

What worries me about this is not SVNKit but current Gradle state in
Debian. I would like to improve Gradle, but in my experience the
maintenance of that package is not trivial and requires lots and lots
of time that I currently don't have.

Help with this is more than welcome, of course.
