Stefan --- could you make the error below clarify in bold red capital
letters the part that says "with as much information as possible about
what you were trying to do"?

There's no reason our users@ volunteers should be answering five times
a month "Read the error message" to random people who insist on
copy-pasting the error message and sending it to us with zero context.

One concrete variant of doing so:
- remove the list address
- remove the s.a.o link
- instead link to a http://tsvn.net landing page
- make the landing use big red text on yellow background:  http://subversion.tigris.org/issue-tracker.html
