+** Board Issues
+The Subversion project has no Board-level issues at this time.
+We have seen some patches and interest from new people on the list,
+and are paying close attention to them, so they will feel welcome and
+hopefully join the community.
+Since we last reported (March), Subversion made a 1.6.11 release under
+its old header/licensing regime (continuing on the 1.5.x and 1.6.x
+branches; 1.7.0 will be the first ASF release). We are hoping for 1.7
+to occur late this summer, and the development community continues to
+work on that release.
+We are planning to put all prior releases (back to 1.0 and possibly
+earlier) onto archive.apache.org for historical preservation. Some of
+the historical (signed) tarballs include LGPL dependent elements, so
+we will carefully label these (we cannot remove them without
+destroying the original signatures). More recent releases separate the
+dependencies, and we will simply omit those (they are optional). The
+1.7 series will use the standard distribution and mirroring framework
+since they are true ASF releases.
+The issue tracker continues to remain offsite, as nobody is in any
+great rush to tackle that project (nor is there a specific known
+requirement for that to happen; just a desire of the project).
+The March Subversion event in NYC went well, producing a suggested
+roadmap that has been well-received and signed-off by the community.
+The Berlin Subversion event is on-track for the 10th through the 13th,
+and an "Apache dinner" will also be held during that time.
+We acquired one GSoC student who will improve the diff format
+generation to support additional options.
