Yes. Thanks for cleaning up my mess, Mike, and sorry for botching the protocol.

I guess I'm getting a little obsessive about this problem: we're still seeing 20-40 thousand downloads per week of the stale Windows binaries in the subversion.tigris.org "Documents and files" area, installers no newer than 1.6.6, and often a lot older. For instance, in the last week the top 10 downloads from this area are:

| 4920 | Setup-Subversion-1.6.6.msi |
| 3168 | Setup-Subversion-1.6.0.msi |
| 3039 | svn-win32-1.6.6.zip |
| 2600 | svn-win32-1.5.6.zip |
| 2185 | svn-1.4.0-setup.exe |
| 2107 | svn-1.4.5-setup.exe |
| 1813 | svn-1.4.6-setup.exe |
| 1767 | Setup-Subversion-1.6.5.msi |
| 1056 | svn-win32-1.4.5.zip |
| 1016 | svn-win32-1.4.3.zip |

"svn-1.4.0-setup.exe"? I'm sorry ... "svn-1.4.0-setup.exe"? Two thousand people really need svn-1.4.0-setup.exe? It's particularly interesting that the download numbers spike every time there's a new Subversion release--as, of course, they should, except that I'm still talking about downloads of older releases. I'm just not buying it. I think these people are confused, and I'm trying to figure out how to help them find something more up-to-date.
