1.3.0-rc3 tarballs up for testing/signing

From: David Anderson <david.anderson_at_calixo.net>

After a long lapse in RCs, here is the latest from the factory floor:
Subversion 1.3.0-rc3. The magic revision is r17470.


Noticing that no single tarball reached the required 3 commiter
signatures during the first two RCs because of the effort dilution
induced by the double-tarball regime, we have reverted to the 1.2.x
status quo: a single tarball, containing bundled dependencies.

Also, the Book now officially no longer ships in the tarball.

Please test this and send signatures, critical bug reports, small furry
creatures and free lunches. Don't forget to Cc: me for binding
signatures, so that I can keep track and (perhaps, this time) release to
the general public.

Finally, a small note to package maintainers for various distributions
and operating systems out there: Subversion 1.3.0-rc3 is currently NOT
released to the public. It is released for the benefit of developers
(commiters and otherwise), for testing and validation.

It is most certainly NOT, at this stage, for inclusion in any
distribution, or exposure to non-developer users without due prior
warning. Even the most bleeding edge package trees will probably
want to wait until the release of rc3 to the users@ mailing list (ie.
once it has passed basic independant validation by several commiters).

Just a reminder of what "being released to dev@" actually means, in
terms of readiness-for-public-consumption terms.

Have fun.
- Dave
