I have svn running on xebian upgraded from 0.19 e-image. Its been a 
while since I did it so I no longer remember the exact details. I do 
remember that I had to manually force the installation of a couple of 
rpms manually with the 'rpm --replace-files' option to get everything 
updated to the latest but since then everything has run smoothly. Dont 
forget to change the repo listing to multimedia.debian.org since some of 
the repos have moved since that release.
