release-process.html currently contains the following sentence:

  The version numbers given above should normally be reconsidered and
  increased to the latest stable upstream release in the time leading up
  to an A.B.0 release.

'above' is actually referring to autoconf/libtool/swig versions, but I
think we might reasonably apply the same policy to apr/apr-util/neon/zlib.

A point which we have *not* documented to my knowledge, is whether we
update to new patch releases of dependencies for new patch releases of
Subversion.
