The 1.6 series is not distributed from apache.org for historical reasons.

1.7.0 was the first release after the Subversion project moved to the ASF.
The 1.7.x series is distributed with a copyright notice by the ASF and
under the Apache 2.0 licence.

The 1.6.x series is not distributed by the ASF. The copyright notice says
"CollabNet" and "many individuals". It uses a modified version of the
Apache 1.1 licence with no reference being made to the ASF.

I made a slight mistake in the release announcement by saying "Apache
Subversion 1.6.18" instead of "Subversion 1.6.18". The announcement
template text uses this wording and I didn't change it.
