So it appears that my problems connecting with opkg are resolved, because opkg update is now working and I successfully installed task-native-sdk.  But I cannot seem to find the subversion package:

root@overo:/# opkg install subversion
Unknown package 'subversion'.

Again I'm running overo air and angstrom v2.39.  Thanks.
