Any volunteers?

I have added this task to the pre-release check-list in
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/community-guide/releasing.html#release-branches

Filed as https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-4716

If anyone has done or is doing any review please could you mention it
there so we can track it.

Thanks.
