In this case, them should all install subversion-base :-)

You see, IMHO the "subversion-server" is a less correct naming for a
currently named "subversion" package, than current "subversion-base" for
"subversion". Thus, to not intrude into religious war, I have no problem
with last. But I still think, that first is incorrect.

Altough SVN team referred to WebDAV server here and there all time, they
are also said that there is no any official SVN server.
