I have to update Subversion on my system because I'm working with a server which is running the version 1.7 and this stops me to make commits.
This is the error it returns:
$ svn commit svn: The path '...' appears to be part of a Subversion 1.7 or greater working copy. Please upgrade your Subversion client to use this working copy.
Currently I'm running the version 1.6.18
$ svn --version svn, version 1.6.18 (r1303927) compiled Aug 4 2012, 19:46:53 Copyright (C) 2000-2009 CollabNet. Subversion is open source software, see http://subversion.apache.org/ This product includes software developed by CollabNet (http://www.Collab.Net/).
I read this question in which the user asked how is it possible to install the version 1.7. They said that this is possible through MacPorts. However I'm using Homebrew as package manager. It provides Subversion 1.7.7
$ brew info subversion subversion: stable 1.7.7 http://subversion.apache.org/ Depends on: pkg-config, neon, sqlite, serf Not installed
However I suppose that having two SVN version installed could bring to some conflicts. Is that true? How can I manage it without removing the Xcode command line tools?
