The code you are about to download is a Release Candidate for Apache Subversion [version] (r[revnum]).
These are candidate tarballs for a pre-release version of Subversion. As such, they are likely to contain bugs, some known, others unknown. You are welcome and encouraged to test this release, and report bugs back to the developers, but please keep in mind that this is not a final release of Apache Subversion.
If you are looking for a copy of Subversion for production use, this is not it; you should instead grab the latest stable release from the Download area.
As stated above, this is not an official, end-user release of Subversion. It is a distribution intended for testing only, and has not been publicly announced. When it has been announced, it still won't be suitable for production use. If you chose to package this pre-release for your operating system distro's management system, you must do so in a way which clearly denotes that this is not the final release, and is only for testing purposes. And please don't do so until it has been publicly announced.
If you want to help us test this distribution of Subversion, you can find the files here.
