More of an informational post regarding a gotcha with getting svn to
work with Designer.

I spent some time banging my head trying to get Designer to recognize a
file based repo. Without a successful setup, it's a little hard to know
which of the alleys is most likely not to be blind.

The vital clue was one of the error messages indicated I should check
the logs (which have much more detail then the error messages of the VCS
dialog box. The key was this line:

svn: Expected FS format between '1' and '3'; found format '6'

Turns out that the subversion client built into designer is very old.
Subversion does allow creating file based repositories with for version
3 but will not do so by default.

Passed on in the hope it will benefit someone else.
