This is a public Release Candidate for Subversion 1.5.0. Due to
changes made since the previous release candidate (rc4), this release
restarts the soak period for 1.5.0-final. (See
http://subversion.tigris.org/hacking.html#release-stabilization for
details about soak periods and the release process.)

The term 'release candidate' means the Subversion developers feel that
this release is stable and ready for production use, so we encourage
people to test this release thoroughly.

As a note to operating system distro packagers: while we wish to have
this release candidate widely tested, we do not feel that it is ready
for packaging and providing to end-users through a distro package
system. Packaging a release candidate poses many problems, the
biggest being that our policy lets us break compatibility between the
release candidate and the final release, if we find something serious
enough. Having many users depending on a release candidate through
their distro would cause no end of pain and frustration that we do not
want to have to deal with. However, if your distro has a branch that
is clearly labeled as containing experimental and often broken
software, and explicitly destined to consenting developers and
integrators only, then we're okay with packaging the release candidate
there. Just don't let it near the end users please.

Please note that due to various improvements made to the working copy
library, the working copy format has changed. Using Subversion 1.5.0-alpha2
on any working copy created by previous versions of Subversion will
TRANSPARENTLY upgrade your working copy, which means that production-ready
versions of Subversion will no longer be able to read it! Please be careful,
if you have two versions of Subversion running on your machine, to not use
the wrong version on a production working copy. If you inadvertently do
upgrade your working copy, you can use the new
tools/client-side/change-svn-wc-format.py script to restore working copy
compatibility with previous versions of Subversion.
