me neither.

I will exclude all of the above from checking for future versions.

ant distribution -Djmeter.version=2.6 -Djava.awt.headless=true

First added -Ddisable-svnCheck=true because I wasn't building from an 
svn workspace, then added -Ddisable-check-versions=true because the 
build was still complaining about the missing svn.revision property and 
setting that property didn't seem to produce the right thing either.

It looks like you already fixed it (didn't test it though).
