Re: http://subversion.tigris.org/...WARNING

We used to have an official policy in place -- svn was only defined to
compile against httpd/apr HEAD at any given moment.

But now, I'm trying to change that policy. I'd like to be a bit more
conservative. I've been running svn against the latest released
versions of httpd/apr instead.

Of course, the problem with this is that svn HEAD may depend on a
small API tweak or bugfix in apr HEAD. So I guess we can only say
that svn *releases* work against httpd/apr releases.

Let me change the warning to explain this policy, and be less
intimidating.
