Subversion-1.6.18 tarballs are now available for testing/signing by
committers. To obtain them please check out a working copy from
Please add your signatures to the .asc files there.
You can use the release.py script for this:
release.py sign-candidates --target /path/to/dist/dev/subversion/wc 1.6.18
which is the equivalent of running the following command for each tarball:
gpg -ba -f - subversion-1.6.18.tar.bz2 >> subversion-1.6.18.tar.bz2.asc
Since this is a 1.6.x release there are -dep tarballs
which should also be signed by those who test them.
I've run a test build with these dependencies on a Debian Linux system.
While signatures for this release are collected via dist.apache.org
the release won't be made from apache.org but from tigris.org.
Downstream packagers, please keep in mind that this release is not
blessed yet. Please do not distribute binaries compiled from these
sources before the release has been officially announced. This release
may still be pulled and supplanted by a different one (with a new version
number) in case of unforeseen problems during the testing phase.
