baseurl=http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/7/svn-1.8/RPMS/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

For CentOS/RHEL 6 Users:
[WandiscoSVN]
name=Wandisco SVN Repo
baseurl=http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/6/svn-1.8/RPMS/$basearch/
enabled=1

[WandiscoSVN]
name=Wandisco SVN Repo

Step 2: Install Subversion Package

After adding WandiscoSVN repository, install subversion (svn client) using following command:

# yum clean all
