1.6.2 tarballs up for signing/testing

I'm pleased to announce that Subversion 1.6.2 is up for testing and
signing. The magic revision is r37639. You can find the tarballs here:


Please be sure to test the bindings.

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.

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
irreparably when they upgrade to 1.6.2 proper. We don't want that
kind of bad publicity, and neither do you.
