v1.5 release date estimate

I'm wondering if anyone here is able to estimate a release date
approximation for Subversion 1.5(.0).

I've wandered around the web pages a bit to get an idea,
following this trail:

    1. http://subversion.tigris.org/
    2. http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html
    3. http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#release
    4. http://subversion.tigris.org/project_status.html
    5. http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/buglist.cgi?component=subversion&issue_status=NEW&issue_status=STARTED&issue_status=REOPENED&target_milestone=1.5&target_milestone=1.5-consider
    6. http://subversion.tigris.org/roadmap.html

At (4) I was able to see that the minor releases are happening
every year or so. At (5) I wasn't able to discern anything about
release readiness. I'd hope to see 1.5 release this year, but
it's really hard to look at the "open issues" and gather any idea
what the overall state represents. And I read the disclaimer at
(6) but I'm still asking. :-)

We need to get ready to deploy (transition from CVS) sometime
early to middle of next year and I'd sure like to be able to use
features (merge tracking in particular) from 1.5 instead of
having to script-wrap around the client (svnmerge.py is likely
not usable in our environment). But if I can't rely on 1.5
releasing in the near future, then I need to start planning
around any important 1.4 shortcomings.

I understand the risk in announcing a release date, but it would
be nice to at least know a ballpark target timeframe, like say
Q108. I haven't been able to find any such estimate on the web
