RE: Subversion 1.2 RC1 Binaries

First of all, let me say that I think Subversion is awesome and I really
appreciate the efforts of everyone involved.

That being said, how ridiculous is it that a project as huge as Subversion
doesn't have official binaries? It seems pretty ridiculous to me. Even
without "official" binaries, it seems like a project this big would at least
have an unofficial repository where automated nightly builds and releases
are stored. Are there no corporate sponsors that would be willing to
provide a build server?

I'm not ungrateful for the efforts of everyone involved here, but I am just
pointing out what I think is a huge hole. I mean, how are we supposed to
help test these releases if there aren't any official binaries?
