Would svnrdump benefit if, once 1.7.x branched and RC's start being
rolled, it were subjected to a more relaxed backporting policy?

If so, we might consider moving it to tools/ for 1.7.x, with intent to
move it back to subversion/svnrdump/ for 1.8.x (as soon as 1.7.x is
branched from trunk).

Thoughts?

subversion/svnmucc/)
