I think we probably could cut alpha1 this week. IMHO the one after
that should be beta1 (unless there's any pressing reason to call it
alpha2). After we've got any big problems (based on tester feedback)
cleared away, we should move right to the RC series, as described in
http://subversion.tigris.org/hacking.html#release-stabilization.

Here's what remains to be done for alpha:

   * Review and voting on porting these changes to 1.5.x:
      + issue #3089 changes (detect repository mergeinfo capability)
      + r29155 (let packagers build some of svn against installed libs)
      + changes to fix 'log -g'.
      + support Neon 0.28

   * Issue #2986 (copy-on-update loggy behaviors)
     I'm working on this right now, with help from glasser, who
     already did most of the issue (just some prop stuff left)

   * Issue #2973 (revert of a changeset rX on a target with merge
                  history from same target does not work)
     I have no idea what this is about, except for the summary above :-).
     pburba, you're the assignee: should this stay in 1.5, and if so,
     what's left to do?

   * Issue #3034 (update mergeinfo-filled dump file, fix any test failures)
     hwright seems mostly done with this; Hyrum?

We should expect to be in RC-land for an unusually long time for this
release. There's going to be a lot of user feedback, they've been
waiting a while for this :-).
