1.8.0-rc1 up for testing/signing

From: Ben Reser <ben_at_reser.org>
Date: Fri, 3 May 2013 17:34:49 -0700

Here it is: the first Release Candidate for Subversion 1.8.0. You can
fetch the proposed tarballs from here:
  https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/subversion

The magic rev is r1478983

This is a release candidate, meaning if all goes well it (or something
very much like it) will become the final release. Please test this as
if it were the final release, understanding that there will be bugs in
any software we ship. <insert lecture about perfect being enemy of
the good here>

To all distributors and binary packagers: This isn't the final
release. It *won't* be the final release for a few weeks yet, so
please don't ship it as such. In any case, don't distribute any
releases based upon these tarballs until we complete our signature
gathering process and officially announce the release.

Reminder that the STATUS file is still for 1.8.0, please be careful
about moving changes to the approved section and only move changes
that appropriate to be merged at this point (i.e. changes that would not
restart our soak). If we have changes we want to put into 1.8.1, it's fine
to put them in the STATUS file and vote on them, just please do not move
them to the approved section. It may be helpful to refer to this section of
our documentation when determining what can done to the 1.8.x branch
during our soak period:
