I don't see what the large rush is to get it out. I would rather not put out a
release that distributers are just going to put in patches that will be in
1.5.1. Also, I would not want to see a release based off rc5.

These are the changes that were merged in that I would like to see in a release.
  Some are pretty minor. The most important ones for me are the improvements to
svnmerge-migrate-history.py and the Python bindings memory leak fix. Some of
these just seem like they should be in a top notch release. I don't want to be
like Oracle, as our DBA says, always wait for the .1 release.

Merge r31055, r31066 from trunk:

   * r31055 (subversion/bindings/swig), r31066
     Make svn_wc_diff_callbacks2_t work in Python (not a new interface,
     it was just broken for Python until r31055).
       'svn merge -c 31055 ^/trunk/subversion/bindings/swig
       subversion/bindings/swig' cleanly merges the Python change.

    Various improvements to svnmerge-migrate-history.py for dealing

Merge r31131 from trunk:

  * r31131
    Restore compatibility of svn_client_add3()'s non-recursive behavior.
      This fixes an API incompatibility. But in practice it's a minor
      problem, and could probably wait until 1.5.1 if necessary.

Merge r31056 from trunk:

  * r31056
    Enable svn.diff in swig-py on Windows.
      +1: epg, arfrever, cmpilato

The changes that have not yet been merged in that I feel should are:

  * r31059, 31060, 31061, 31075, 31151
    Fix issue #3157, Merging a change from a path's natural history
    creates self-referential mergeinfo
      r31075 and 31151 are the core fixes for the issue, the other revisions
      are a new test for it (and a few minor follow-ups to that test).
      The addition of the new merge test in r31059 trivally conflicts
      because several other new merge tests are not backported yet.
      +1: pburba, cmpilato

  * r31243, r31246, r31249, r31250, r31251, r31271
    Fix issue #3200, API Ickiness: svn_client_ctx_t shouldn't carry
    "extra revprops"; the svn_client APIs should
      If we *don't* backport this in 1.5.0, we need to undo the changes
      or otherwise rework them to use newly-revved svn_client APIs.
      This is not quite finished -- need feedback from Ruby, Perl, and
      JavaHL bindings maintainers.

Given the changes that have been merged into the branch, I think we should merge
in these two sets of changes, cut an RC6 by Wednesday if possible. If the Ruby,
Perl and JavaHL bindings are not completely up to snuff, we can extend them in
1.5.1. Better the C API be clean.
