1.4.0-rc5 tarballs up for testing/signing

Subversion 1.4.0-rc5 is up for testing and signing. The magic revision
is r21228.


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.

- Dave
