    You are looking at the version in experimental so of course its labled as
    experimental ;-)

    On the other hand, the version in unstable is the stable version of
    subversion. I believe that also the version in experimental is considered
    stable. There was an email from the maintainer some time ago that the
    latest version is not propagating the unstable at the moment (and thus
    testing) due to the freeze process of testing, and since there are a few
    dependencies it would require compilation and testing of some other
    packages, so its held back untill the freeze (or possibly untill the
    freeze will prove to take too long, whichever comes first).

    You should be safe with both the version in unstable and experimental in
    this specific case (unrelated to this, I use a few packages from
    experimental and didn't run into trouble yet).

    If you are looking for packages for woody, look in there is
    a version for i386 woody, and I also found a version for powerpc woody
