So far we have two known issues with this tarball:

svn-populate-node-origins-index doesn't build with Visual Studio 2010, 2012, or
2013 due to the ' in the project's descriptions. Bert found and fixed this in

Certificate validation failure. There was a missing initialization that will
make certificates without subjectAltNames randomly fail to validate.
svn.apache.org's certificate just so happens to be such a certificate. The bug
is such that it will never allow a certificate to be validated that shouldn't
be. Julian reported this here:
and I fixed the problem in http://svn.apache.org/r1568349

I wasn't terribly inclined to re-roll 1.9.0-alpha for the first one, but the
second one seems more critical since I'm guessing a lot of people will run into it.

I'm not going to immediately run out and produce a new tarball since I suspect
we may find more things, so please continue testing this and let me know if you
find other things.
