svn.collab.net is now running 1.5.0-alpha2

I've upgraded svn.collab.net to Subversion 1.5.0-alpha2 (and ViewVC 1.0.5,
but that's not terribly relevant).

I did *not* run 'svnadmin upgrade' on the repository, so if we did our
coding correctly, we still do *not* have merge-tracking enabled for
ourselves. There is a reason for this.

See, I've got a custom svnsync built on the box that, while copying
repository data, also:

    a) strips wholesale any svn:mergeinfo properties, and
    b) renames the svnmerge-integrated property to svn:mergeinfo

(It leaves svnmerge-blocked, mostly for reasons of technical complication.)

I've used this tool to mirror our 1.4-era repositories into new 1.5-era
repositories. The 'svn' mirror is available (read-only) at:

    http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn.1.5/

My hope is that folks will help me verify that this repository survived this
svnsync-n-tweak as expected. If so, we'll do a cutover to the new
repository soon.

NOTE: Everyone will need new working copies after the cutover -- history
has been munged. Also, folks who've been using svnsync to mirror the
repositories will need to start anew with fresh mirrors.
