#3352 new defect

SVN repository should be disabled

Users are still blindly following ancient "guides" and attempting to use the code from SVN. Unfortunately, the repository appears to still be available:

$ svn co svn:// ffmpeg
A    ffmpeg/COPYING.LGPLv3
 U   ffmpeg
Checked out revision 26402.

This should be disabled, and, if possible, a message could be provided to inform users to use Git or refer to the download page.

At least parts of the subversion FFmpeg repository are needed for MPlayer regression tests.
Perhaps this issue can be fixed by committing a patch to configure that disables building FFmpeg.
