And the rest of the paragraph says:
"Bug reports must be mailed to our mailing list. You don't have to
subscribe to the mailing list if you don't want to. You can read the
mailing list from gmane or haxx too.

Just make sure that if you're not subscribed to the mailing list that
you ask in your bugreport to reply also directly to you, otherwise you
won't get any answers to your report."

Because lots of people were getting confused by the fact that you have
to subtract 1 from the first revision you want to merge. It is proving
hard to please everyone :-(

Because if you are looking at a branch, it is natural to want the log to
stop at the branch creation point. Unfortunately, that's not the only
place it can stop. Subversion will do true renames sometime soon ...
