+EDITING THE HISTORY
+===================
+
+On August 26, 2003, the ^/clients tree was pruned from history and split
+into separate repositories:

+(dev@, August 2011, "Did we have ^/clients?")
+
+
+On March 5, 2008, in the run up to the 1.5.0 release, svn:mergeinfo
+properties were removed, and svnmerge-integrated properties transformed
+into svn:mergeinfo properties:

+(dev@, March 2008, "[IMPORTANT] The repositories at svn.collab.net have been migrated")
+
+
+Subversion's code's history began on March 1, 2000, initially stored in
+a CVS repository.  On August 31, 2001, the code moved to a Subversion
+repository, without converting history (cvs2svn didn't exist then).  The
+next section describes how the pre-self-hosting history was stitched
+back together.
