From svn.collab.net:

   o Subversion: 1.1.0rc2 (plus a tweaked mailer.py)

I'm fine with that.

No, sir. The Subversion running on that machine should match a
tarball that is publicly available (meaning, either rcX or final
releases).

svn.collab.net is *not* a test machine or a staging environment. It
is a critical piece of the development framework for the many folks
that contribute to Subversion, and a primary delivery outlet for the
many more folks that want to simply track HEAD (but aren't
developers). All of these folks deserve to be connecting to software
that we believe to be stable -- stable enough for us to roll it into
tarball, post it, and tell folks they should use it on their own
servers. If a problem is found in one of our release candidates or
final releases that is so bad that we would be tempted to upgrade
svn.collab.net, then that problem is bad enough to require us to roll
a new release candidate or bugfix release, at which time our server
can be upgraded accordingly.
