This is necessary, because otherwise the developers would spend far
more time closing invalid bugs. People would submit bug reports for
problems which are already known, and people would submit bug reports
for things that are not bugs, but are rather their own
misunderstandings of how Subversion is designed to function. We have
had several examples of this in just the past week on this list.

That is the only way an RFC-compliant list can function. The debate
is over. Please read:
