Re: Apache Subversion 1.7.0-rc4 Released

From: Hyrum K Wright <hyrum.wright_at_wandisco.com>
Date: Mon, 10 Oct 2011 12:47:05 -0300

The -deps packages have been deprecated for quite some time. If the
INSTALL file refers to the -deps packages, that file is in error.
Though looking through the INSTALL file son the tag, I don't see any
such reference:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/tags/1.7.0-rc4/INSTALL
