SVN is like a girl with huge tits and a pet Rhino, lots of fun most of the time but that damned Rhino keeps breaking all your shit. One of the first things to check when you notice peculiar behavior in your SVN workflow is to make sure your SVN client and the SVN server are running compatible version. I found this useful, so I’m making a note of it here.

To get the version of the SVN server:

wget -S --no-check-certificate --user='jack' password='thepassword' --spider '' 2>&1 | sed -n '/SVN/s/.*\(SVN[0-9\/\.]*\).*/\1/p';

The client:

svn --version
