I noticed this weekend that the Windows installer refers to the
license-1.html file like this:

"This is version 1 of this license. It is also available online at
http://subversion.tigris.org/license-1.html. If newer versions of this
license are posted there (the same URL, but with the version number
incremented: .../license-2.html, .../license-3.html, and so on), you may
use a newer version instead, at your option. "

There probably was a reason why the filename included the version, is
that reason gone now? If a new version of the license is released, users
of a previous version of Subversion still have the option to comply to
the old version, not to the new. If I understood correctly, in your
current proposal we will automatically update the license file to the
latest version?

regards,

Lieven.
