I *always* have opinions. :)

Personally, I still have a few tweaks to make to the 'log -g' and 'blame
- -g' stuff, and I think I can have that done in the next couple of
weeks. There are also a couple of known issues (they are in the issue
tracker, iirc), and I plan to look at those also. I'm going to be busy
with academic pursuits for the next few months, so my time to work on
Subversion may be fairly limited.

I think branching 1.5 on October 12th would be good goal. But, I also
think that the stabilization period is going to take a while. Merge
tracking is Hard, and I just have this sneaky suspicion that we're going
to discover some interesting bugs with the increased testing when we
start releasing RCs. There's nothing wrong with that (I prefer known
bugs to unknown ones), but it's something we should remember. There's
just a lot in this release.
