Correction: the subversion BerkeleyDB backend is still very much alive and kicking. There were some early issues (they did things that SleepyCat told them not to do :-) but it was corrected and it's still working fine for several large users.
Thanks for the correction! It seems my information is a bit outdated. Several years ago we have moved most or all subversion repositories to fsfs because we had major issue with the Berkeley backend. I haven't used the bdb backend since then.
