Hello,

I just noticed this small typo and figured I would let you know (see below):

>I'm pleased to announce that Subversion 1.6.5 is up for testing and

>Please be sure to test the bindings.

This should probably be "1.6.5 proper." Probably wouldn't be confusing to
many people, but worth pointing out.
