Re: 1.5.0-rc6 up for signing/testing

Well, the tests were all looking good for me. All the bindings tests
passed and I had gotten through all the ra_local. Earlier I had run
serf and neon. But then on my Windows box I accidentally stumbled on
a bug I created in JavaHL. I am creating a fix now that I will
propose for backport.

There is another thread about that.

Quick summary: We made a change to JavaHL last week to synch it with
other API changes. When you run svn log in JavaHL, you now get back
all of the revprops in a Map. Where as we used to get author, date
and message as explicit fields. Anyway, we added a class to parse the
svn:date string into a Java date. The bug was that the parsing code
was assuming the date was in the current timezone, and I believe it is
actually in UTC timezone. No one has actually confirmed that for me,
and if it is not true, then only the test that is failing is wrong. I
am going to commit code that assumes the date is in UTC as that is
what it looks like when I am testing it.
