Alien::SVN - A wrapper for installing the SVN Perl bindings


Alien::SVN is a wrapper to install the Perl bindings for subversion, also known as SVN::Core. If your module needs SVN::Core it can depend on Alien::SVN instead and then the CPAN shell can handle automatic installation. This is particularly useful for programs like SVK.

It comes with a copy of Subversion 1.7.3 which it will compile but only installs the Perl and Subversion libraries. The subversion binaries will not be installed.


Alien::SVN only wraps SVN::Core. We don't work on it.

Bug reports, problems and feedback about Alien::SVN and building SVN::Core should come to us at <bug-Alien-SVN> at <rt.cpan.org>. Or use the web interface at http://rt.cpan.org.

Issues and improvements to SVN::Core should go to the Subversion project directly. http://subversion.apache.org/issue-tracker.html

If you're not sure who to report to, you can always report to us and we'll point you in the right direction.

Report early, report often.

The repository can be found at http://github.com/schwern/alien-svn/tree/master.
