The svn 1.2 release.

From: Ben Collins-Sussman <sussman_at_collab.net>

OK, we're essentially at the end of the road for 1.2.

   * Locking feature is merged and tested
   * APIs are nearly done being cleaned up
   * last minute bugs are being fixed
   * issuetracker is being swept
   * I'm almost done with CHANGES and release-notes

There are still some loose ends to tie up, but after some discussion
with Ben Reser and Justin Erenkrantz, we'd like to do the branch and
1.2-rc1 tarball on Monday, starting around 10am Pacific time.

So, there are two reasons for this email:

First, this is an official "last call" for patches, tweaks.

Second, acting as co-RM's for this release, Ben and Justin would like
to use 1.2 as an opportunity for making some tweaks to our release

   1. Switch to libtool 1.5.10 in our tarball. Apparently this has been
working well for the httpd project, and solves a number problems people
have complained about. (Justin has details.)

   2. Require more formalized testing of the tarball. Just like the
httpd release process, require three committers to officially "+1" (and
gpg-sign) the tarball before release.

Comments welcome.
