1.4.0-rc1 tarballs up for testing/signing

Following a comment by cmpilato on the directory names I randomly
choose to hide the tarballs for unblessed releases until people have
read the large warning, I will now unveil the strange origins of these
names in my call for sigs.

This one is the name of a band that I was listening to while the
tarballs rolled. It is caracterized by the band members being very
much aware that they are being very silly, and a vampire/werewolf
theme (quite fitting, as they are a Romanian band).

So, with no further ado, Subversion 1.4.0-rc1, is up for testing and
signing. The magic revision is r19895.


As usual, signatures from full committers back to me, and enthusiastic
tester feedback is welcome. However, this RC is not yet blessed for
wide release, so please don't make it available to people not
interested in test-driving the new release.

Also, distro package maintainers, please to NOT include any RC builds,
even blessed, into operating system distros. The reasons for not
doing so were very eloquently outlined by Karl in a mail, which is
summarized at the above address.

The quick version is: we don't guarantee compatibility between the RCs
and the final release, so if people install the RC, all their
repositories and working copies might break unrepairably when they
upgrade to 1.4.0 proper. We don't want that kind of bad publicity,
and neither do you.

Have fun!
