It turns out that we'll need one more critical fix before we roll
1.3.0rc3. r17401 cleans up the SWIG build system so that we no longer
depend on timestamps to determine whether users of our release
tarballs need to regenerate our SWIG files. Instead, we ask users to
switch to non-release mode if they wish to regenerate SWIG files
automatically.

  * r17401
    Only regenerate SWIG files based on timestamps when we are in
    non-release mode.
    Justification:
      Prior to r17401, Subversion regenerated the SWIG files if 'make'
      determined that the SWIG files were out of date, based on their
      timestamps. This caused the SWIG files to be incorrectly
      regenerated if the exact timestamps from the tarball were not
      preserved. Thanks to r17401, we now only regenerate SWIG files
      based on timestamps when we are in non-release mode.

Folks, the time is ripe for reviewing!

Best,

David
