hm, maybe it's better to keep the bug open, if you want to track of the libdb
removal archive wide.
Please let me know, as soon as you have filed a bug against libsvn-dev. Let's
then block this bug by the bug against libsvn-dev.
As soon as libsvn-dev is fixed, we can "fix" the kdesvn bug by a binNMU.


P.S: thanks for working on this. Those multiple libdb versions have always
annoyed me and I support any effort shrinking that list.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
