This is a release candidate for what will eventually become Apache
Subversion 1.7.0. It is thought to be free of blocking issues, and if
none are found will become the final release. For this reason, we
encourage thorough testing in as many environments as possible. This
release candidate begins the four-week "soak" period to allow for
further testing, and barring show-stopping bugs, the final 1.7.0
release can be expected on or near Sept. 28.

Even though we feel that this release is ready for widespread testing
by the community, some things may still change before the final
release. Of particular note, please remember than persistent data,
such as the working copy or repository formats may change before the
final release, and there may not be an upgrade path from the
pre-releases to the final.

As a note to operating system distro packagers: while we wish to have this
release candidate widely tested, we do not feel that it is ready for packaging
and providing to end-users through a distro package system. Packaging a
release candidate poses many problems, the biggest being that our policy lets
us break compatibility between the release candidate and the final release, if
we find something serious enough. Having many users depending on a release
candidate 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 release candidate there. Just don't let it near the
end users please.
