I cannot help thinking that we might have avoided a lot of questions and
frustrations if a status note and request for a new maintainer had been
added to either the download page (still tigris.org) and/or the Windows
Binaries page at apache
(http://subversion.apache.org/packages.html#windows).

I have looked at buiding the binaries myself but am unsure of how much
work there is (and I have issues about what I am allowed to install
here) but there seems to be quite a lot involved to build:
~ the main subversion binaries
~ Apache 2.0 binaries
~ Apache 2.2 binaries
~ python bindings for 2.5, 2.6, ...
~ ruby bindings
~ perl bindings
~ JavaHL (?)
~ Debug symbol packages

As previously mentioned, the problem stems mostly from lack of
instructions of how to put this all together...
