        Hmmm, is the release process automateable enough to just build nightly
tarballs every day from HEAD? You'd catch these problems when they
happened then. I know that svn breakage has scripts to build on various
platforms in a cron'ed up manner. It might be interesting to send the
output of the tarball-release script to svn-breakage.

        Whoever does the nighly builds now, can't be that far from being able
to do this. (Hint, hint: I'd run Subversion's nightly builds, if doing
the build of the current source was: download ; unpack ; ./configure ;
make ; do something else for 30 minutes ; test-svn ). Building
subversion fresh from HEAD of all the various packages takes too darn
long, and too often in the past, building clean was the only way I could
straighten out my build. How many bug reports have gone away, when
someone did a fresh rebuild? My guess is I'm not the only one.

        Even if the tarballs aren't released, it might be a nice thing for
someone to automate and send to svn-breakage. Even if you personally
don't run the scripts.

        Thanks,
                Kirby
