Time for RC4 or more issues?

This is to get feedback on where we are in terms of producing an RC4.

I believe the "main" issues that blocked us from releasing RC3 have
all been fixed and backported. That said, there are some items left
in STATUS that need votes:

 * r30574
   Use `neon-config --libs` when `neon-config --la-file` isn't available.
     +1: arfrever, cmpilato

 * r30633, r30634
   Make 'svn merge' output state when the merge is from a foreign repository.
     If we don't backport this, we need to increment the @since line
     for svn_wc_notify_foreign_merge_begin.
     +1: cmpilato, pburba

 * r30644
   Make --record-only merges record and elide mergeinfo on subtrees.
     Record only merges without this functionality are a lot less useful.
     +1: pburba

I suppose none of these are critical, but it would be good to get them
in to RC4 if someone can review.

What else is out there? I think there are 3 specific issues.

3172 DEFECT P2 NEW 'svn log -g' seems to encounter error on server
3067 DEFECT P3 REOPEN subtrees with intersecting mergeinfo,
that don't exist at th
3174 DEFECT P3 NEW Merge algorithm chokes on subtrees
needing special attention

I have heard it suggested that some or all of these can wait until a
1.5.1. I am fine with that, but I'd also be fine with waiting for any
or all of these if someone thinks a fix is imminent. So I am raising
this as a chance for people to declare if they are working on any of
these and give a status update.

Paul is signed up for 3067, and I assume he is looking at it. Kamesh
added some good detective work to 3172 if someone wants to look at it.
 Paul has committed XFAIL tests for 3067 and 3174.

Anyway, I am not so much pushing for an RC4 as I am just trying to get
some clarity on what needs to be done to get there. I am sure I am
not the only one that is wondering.
