Because there are a few more marks to mention, I went with a two-sentence
approach. The notice on the subversion.a.o pages now reads as follows:

   Apache, Apache Subversion, and the Apache feather logo are trademarks
   of The Apache Software Foundation. Subversion and the Apache Subversion
   logo are registered trademarks of The Apache Software Foundation.

While I was there, I changed the header to read:

   Apache(tm) Subversion(R)
