Re: Subversion 1.5 Release decision?

In the spirit of Karl's other thread, can we try to reach some
consensus on what to release? It feels like everytime we seem to be
reaching a consensus something drives the discussion elsewhere. I am
as guilty as anyone.

In my opinion, the latest consensus seems to be that we should release
what is currently on the 1.5.x branch minus some revisions that we do
not want to include in 1.5.0. I currently count 5 revisions that have
been proposed to not include in 1.5.0. Perhaps we should agree that
this is the general approach we want to take before we haggle over
which revisions to exclude.

I think Karl has semi-proposed an alternate approach in that other
thread. That is start with the RC5 branch code and then decide what
if any additional revisions we want to add to it.

I was originally (earlier today) leaning towards Karl's proposal, but
after listing out the fixes that have been backported, the shear
quantity of trivial doc changes, translation updates, and minor fixes
makes me thing we ought to go with the former approach and just decide
what we want to take out.

I propose we agree on one of these two approaches and then work out
the details in a new thread.

Something that goes along with this is "When to release". I think
these two approaches put us on a path of doing an RC6 sometime in the
next few days and then final release roughly one week later. I think
this is a fairly important point we also need to reach consensus on
because it gives us something to use when deciding which revisions to
