I'm pleased to announce that Subversion 1.5.0 is up for testing and
signing. The magic revision is r31699. This is the same magic revision
as rc11, so the differences between the tarballs should be limited to


You know the drill: signatures from full committers back to me, and
enthusiastic tester feedback is welcome. At this point, this candidate
is not yet blessed for wide release, so please don't make it available
to people not interested in test-driving the new release. Even though
the code has been tested and signed previously, please test and sign
this release to ensure code completeness and that I didn't bork the
packaging somehow.

Distro package maintainers, please do NOT include any pre-release
builds, even blessed, into operating system distros. The reasons for
not doing so were very eloquently outlined by Karl in a mail, which is
summarized at the above address.

The quick version is: we don't guarantee compatibility between the
pre-releases and the final release, so if people install the release
candidate, all their repositories and working copies might break
unrepairably when they upgrade to 1.5.0 proper. We don't want that kind
of bad publicity, and neither do you.
