It was an explicit decision by me, the package maintainer. The 1.7
release series had an svn-bisect that I grabbed from Debian. It is not
part of the official Subversion repository. In 1.8, Subversion upstream
decided to remove many of the contributed tools from their repository. I
decided at the same time to drop svn-bisect and a few other tools from
Debian because Debian does not have 1.8 and it felt to me like
svn-bisect should be a separate package.

I no longer use Subversion, having switched to git, so it's unlikely
that I'll package svn-bisect. Any other interested parties are certain
welcome to create a package for it, though.
