Are you using Ubuntu? Do you have feisty-proposed as one of your apt
repositories? A broken subversion dpkg was uploaded to feisty-proposed in the
past couple of days. It's missing the plugin that lets you access http:// SVN
repositories. Downgrade to the version in feisty: 1.4.3dfsg1-1ubuntu1.

This convinced me not to use the *-proposed repositories anymore.
