Not really a developer, but I do run SVN since I use HDTV and DVB heavily. I 
run Debian from a Kanotix base, its what I had on my desktop/server and 
laptop so it was easy for me to start with. I'm running regular packages from 
Debian Sarge and Sarge/Backports and compiled the firewire libraries myself.
I just built 8501 without issue.
