For those who missed it on IRC, 1.6.7 is on hold.

Hyrum ran into a problem when reintegrating a branch back to 1.6.x
using the (at the time) latest 1.6.x client. Here is the merge he did
(though this has a pegged source because the backport branch was

1.6.x.>svn merge ^^/subversion/branches/1.6.x-r40452_at_891008 . --reintegrate
..\..\..\subversion\libsvn_ra_neon\util.c:546: (apr_err=160013)
svn: '/repos/asf/!svn/bc/875961/subversion/branches/1.6.x' path not found

Unfortunately this reintegrate works with 1.6.6, so we have a regression.

I've traced the cause to r890993 (Reintegrate the 1.6.x-r889840
branch) which was my attempt to address the myriad of problems caused
by issue #3547 http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3547,
which converted all the mergeinfo in our repository from absolute to
relative merge source paths when we loaded it into the ASF repos. I
haven't been able to fix the reintegrate problem Hyrum encountered,
heck it's not exactly clear to me what is going wrong, but I'm working
on it.
