Very happy to see three responses to this! :-)

Those tests are sufficient, plus make sure that the binary you build
(from the candidate distribution) can check out the Subversion sources
from http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/.

Well, there's no obvious way to say "who's it" here :-), so, assuming
he's still interested, let's go with Michael for now, with James Cox
and Paul Lussier, the other two respondees, as backup release managers
just in case Michael gets swamped. Additionally, if someone can help
Michael with Windows testing, that would be most welcome.

It would of course be great to have Windows testing, though we haven't
been doing so for the interim releases up till now. Michael, if you
can find someone else (hmm, maybe James or Paul?) who can test on
Windows, perhaps you could coordinate with them?

We'll hopefully be finishing libsvn_auth (issue #724) tomorrow. The
release process can begin as soon as that's done (Brane is still
working on issue #639, 'introduce svn_filesize_t', and I don't know if
he was planning to finish it up for tomorrow -- but he's clearly going
to finish it soon, so I'm not worried if it doesn't make it into this
release). We'll say something on the list when it's time to create
the branch; note that you can begin working on the CHANGES list before
then.

Please ask lots of questions as you go, don't be shy :-). Ben C-S,
Mike Pilato, and I have done plenty of releases, so we should be able
to answer very quickly.

In the meantime, can you send me your password (plaintext or crypted)
for the repository, so I can set you up to make the release branch,
etc?

Thanks,
-Karl
