+	<b>IMPORTANT!</b> At the current time, selecting by date in subversion within
the
+	ASF repository isn't reliable. The reason is that imports of data from CVS
+	repositories into <i>any</i> part of the subversion repository stuffs up subversion's
+	date-based indexes for all modifications prior to that import, even in non-related
+	parts of the repository (the indexes are repository-wide). So while dates are
+	reported correctly in "svn log" output, only revision numbers should be used with
+	the -r option.
