Hi guys,

Im going to put the new version of svn (1.5.2) to testing tonight. I
have been sending packages to extra with it and it is working as expected.

I plan to have a really small test time and then send it to extra - i
have been receiving quite some emails requesting the update =)

As Aaron said, we still need to update the repos and fix the scripts to
use svn merge, but this do not need to be done right now (i will take a
    look at the scripts to fix it) as this version works for us
(packages) as the current one in extra.

Thanks for the patience and sorry for the delay in the svn update.
