This is the first public release for what will eventually become
Apache Subversion 1.7.0. It contains several known issues, a complete
list of 1.7.0-blocking issues can be found here:


The term 'alpha' means the Subversion developers feel that this release
is ready for widespread testing by the community. There are known issues
(and unknown ones!), so please use it at your own risk, though we do
encourage people to test this release thoroughly.

As a note to operating system distro packagers: while we wish to have this
alpha widely tested, we do not feel that it is ready for packaging and
providing to end-users through a distro package system. Packaging a alpha
poses many problems, the biggest being that our policy lets us break
compatibility between the alpha and the final release, if we find something
serious enough. Having many users depending on an alpha through their
distro would cause no end of pain and frustration that we do not want to
have to deal with. However, if your distro has a branch that is clearly
labeled as containing experimental and often broken software, and
explicitly destined to consenting developers and integrators only, then we're
okay with packaging the alpha there. Just don't let it near the end users

Please note that due to various improvements made to the working copy
library, the working copy format has changed. You must explicitly upgrade
your working copy by running 'svn upgrade'. After doing so, the working copy
will no longer be usable by earlier versions of Subversion.

move toward a final release.
