+1 to that!

I hope my fellow developers (in particular the CollabNet folk, who are
most involved in milestone scheduling) will forgive me this unilateral
move, but it's a weekend so timely discussions are harder to have:

I'd like to move Alpha from Monday (tomorrow) to Thursday. This will
give us time to *carefully* review the entire locking strategy in
libsvn_wc, from the ground up, including the aforementioned
patch... And to test what we commit :-).

Alpha is going to get noticed, so we want to release as stable a
Subversion as possible. Taking three days for a little risk-control
is well worth it.

I've updated the status page to the new date.
