Well, here's an example for you of why people may refuse to use SVN.

I downloaded the sources via svn and built Lazarus, no problem in that

Then I ran V2.0 and started installing some packages I use.

I got the following error on rebuilding Lazarus, line 1134 of
IBCustomDataSet, which is

"           Result := ValidUTF8String(TextToSingleLine(Result))"

The error message was "Identifier not found, ValidUTF8String".

Now what?
