This script is now committed at

When it runs 'svn checkout' it adds '-r {2017-12-01}', in order to test
how it would have worked to create the 1.10 release branch. It uses a
date there rather than a revision number because multiple repositories
are involved.

When it wants to runs 'svn commit' and server-side 'svn copy', currently
it just prints these commands and does not run them.

Both of these facilities for testing are currently hard-coded. It needs
a way to enable/disable test mode from the command line.
