I realize this can be confusing.

We have had a number of patches accepted to trunk for building Subversion
on OS/400 V5R4. Obviously none of these are going to be backported to the
1.3.x branch. However, we still need to produce working builds of
Subversion 1.3.x for users of OS/400 V5R4. We cannot use the existing
EBCDIC branch for this, because that version only works on the older
versions of OS/400.

So I need a "permanent" branch just for Subversion 1.3.x on OS/400 V5R4.

Thanks

Mark
