No subversion (svn) support in Visual Studio 2019 for Mac


There is no longer an option for SVN (subversion) for source control in VS 2019 for Mac. The plug-in is there, it's enabled, but the IDE log indicates: 'subversion addin could not load libsvn_client, so it will be disabled'.

Since SVN is apparently no longer included in the XCode tools, we installed it via MacPorts. Below are the relevant version details.

  • Mac OS : 10.15.5
  • svn --version : 1.13.0

Any thoughts on how to get this working?
